Ahhhh Professor Brinberg...Professor Brinberg is a great person. He really is a genuinely kind hearted guy. The problem is that he is so busy with his study abroad work (which is truly commendable) that his instruction kind of falls by the wayside. He is head of the Creating Sustainable Social Change study abroad program in Lugano and Africa and as you can imagine this takes a good amount of his time. At first, I could not stand Professor Brinberg--he really frustrated me because I had no idea what he was talking about in class, he would go off on tangents, there was no real outline for the material, and we honestly had no idea what to expect on exams. In addition to that, the project was very vague, and as a class, the majority of us were completely lost with respect to what we should be doing/what he expected for the project. Also, he has a completely different grading scale--one that he does not share with the class. He basically says he will curve the grades so that they are evenly distributed (so many A's, B's, C's, etc.) but he never tells you what the cut off for an A or a B or a C will be so you never really have a solid grasp on your progress in the class unless you go sit down with him in his office hours. WHICH I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE. Because the more I found I got to know Professor Brinberg, the more I realized that I really liked him. He has a sense of humor, and is a helpful, kind person. I just don't think that he should be teaching with his workload right now--he will tell you himself that he knows he hasn't had the time he needed to put into the class. But like I said, he is an exceptional person and his heart is in the right place.

He definitely knows is stuff and is a makes the information pretty relevant. I definitely didn't like him at first as he can be very brusque and very vague at times. I had him while I studied abroad.

Pros: Brinberg is a laid back professor, who knows exactly what he's talking about. Responds to emails quickly. Makes class fun.
Took while studying abroad.
