Professor Lint is an amazing professor that truly cares about his students' mental state. If you feel uncomfortable with a certain topic, you can let him know and can work things out. The topics were very interesting and thought-provoking. This class was very discussion-based; less than 30 minutes spent on lectures. The discussions rely heavily on the readings, which are very interesting. As for writing, there are a couple essays that are required but they are fun to write because they focus on our opinion, thoughts, and reflections of a topic (violence in images, music, games, etc). I definitely would love to take another course with Professor Lint.

I really enjoyed this course this past semester. It covered very interesting material if you are interested in the American lifestyle. We discussed violence within music and music videos, video games, movies, tv shows, true crime, and American culture. There can be a lot of readings depending on the week, but they are all generally pretty interesting and you can definitely get away with not doing all of the readings. There are reading quizzes, but they are open note and he lets you work in groups to complete them. Also, there are four essays over the semester relating to the material but you only have to complete three of them and they are only three to four pages. Other than that, there is not much else graded work aside from the final project. You can tell professor Lint really cares about his student and checks in on us constantly as you deal with some pretty extreme material within this course. Overall, I really enjoyed my time in this course and would definitely take it again if given the chance.

American Studies: Crime and Violence is very discussion based. The work outside of class is a lot of reading articles and being prepared to talk about them in class discussions. In class, the discussions are very open and Professor Sagarena allows the conversation to go to important places even if it doesn't regard the readings. There are a few quizzes, but they are either in groups or open note.

This course was very eye-opening and I learned a lot about crime in violence in America through many different lenses. However, there was a ton of reading for this course that we needed to know for class discussions that wasn't possible to know. The essays were interesting but very difficult to write as they were abstract.

Professor Lint Sagarena's courses are always so interesting. I liked this course in particular because it was very discussion-based. He lectured for a few minutes, and then we talked about the readings which were also conversation-provoking. I recommend taking a course with him! We had little writing homework assignments throughout the semester but he is a very fair grader!

This was a very easy class, very low commitment and only had 3 short papers. Reading quizzes were collaborative. Lint is very kind and cares a lot about students but can be a little disorganized, so lectures were a little boring.

Professor Lint is amazing and genuinely cares about the material. We had several movie screenings (Pulp Fiction being one) and he bought everyone who came dinner. He is also accommodating with extensions.

This class was extremely interesting and eye-opening to current and past crime issues in the United States. I found it so cool to look at crime and violence through different social media lenses and gazes.

Professor Sagarena is easily one of the best professors to touch this planet. He is a very fair grader and usually bases it off of how you discuss in class. He allows for flexibility in papers and ensures to prioritize his students mental well being over anything else.

He is beyond accommodating to students' needs and curates such interesting modules. The weekly reflection papers were short and just an insight into your personal takeaways from the reading. I think about this class a lot.
