Professor Reviews
  Never met a more passionate teacher! You could ask him about any event from the entire middle ages and he can give you the date and everyone involved. The tests aren't terribly hard, but there are soo many dates that it's sometimes hard to keep track of it all, especially being that I really only took the class for my history credit. If you love history, then you'll love Whalen and this class.   posted on December 5, 2009
  If you have a chance to take one of his classes, do it. The guy's been on the History Chanel. History 107 wasn't necessary for me to take; however, it was probably the most interesting class I've attended at Chapel Hill.   posted on November 7, 2011
  probably the most passionate teacher I've ever had. He seriously knows his stuff. The tests arent too bad, but the multiple choice focuses on the things he vaguely touched on in class. The TA's grade all of your stuff, and the paper assignments get annoying after awhile. Probably 6 total. its still such an interesting class for 107 .   posted on October 29, 2010
  One of the best professors at UNC: knowledgeable, personable, and reasonable.   posted on May 17, 2011
  By far my favorite teacher at UNC. Excellent professor and overall a charismatic and passionate guy.   posted on September 7, 2011
  NOT at all one of the "best professors at UNC" as everyone above has said. I took his class based on these recommendations and I am regretting it. VERY boring lectures, doesn't post powerpoints, gives "lecture outlines" that are nowhere close to being helpful. Forces you to attend lecture, doesn't allow laptops. Tons of reading and a good amount of writing. In 6 semesters here, one of the very few classes I would say avoid at all costs.   posted on February 23, 2012
  Whalen is an engaging lecturer, but the class still leaves something to be desired. The workload is insane for a 100 level history course and the grading is quite strict. I really think he likes to hear himself talk, and even more, he wants to make sure everyone else is hearing him talk (which is why he banned laptops, and sometimes goes off on people texting in lecture).   posted on February 29, 2012
  He's an alright lecturer, and he's definitely approachable. My issues are that the grading for an intro course is ridiculously strict. I would not take one of his classes again.   posted on March 26, 2012
  He is a fantastic professor. However, like some of the aforementioned posts say, his class is ridiculously hard for a 100 level class to which most people don't need. I loved the material and worked probably harder in this class then any other class here (including sciences) and I don't think I'll get higher than an A- because his expectations, especially for papers, are just too high. You'll need to utilize every resource at your disposal to consider getting an A. The readings are absolutely necessary. And there are a lot of them.   posted on April 16, 2012
  GREAT. I took this just to fulfill my WB credit, and it ended up being one of my favorite classes. Whalen is a great lecturer who is really passionate about the subject, and cares more about you learning than failing you. Tests are painfully easy, and 25% of your grade is attendance. Reading is necessary for recitation and writing papers. Paper grades depend on your TA, but it isn't hard to show them you're trying, and they'll help you out. Laptops are allowed (you just have to justify your use), and necessary to get down all of the info from lecture. 100% recommend this class!   posted on April 27, 2012
  Professor Whalen is my favorite teacher at this University. Great lecturer, who knew the Middle Ages could be so interesting (History 107). The exams are broken into a few multiple choice, fill in the blanks, and then 3 IDs (1 image, 2 primary documents). You'll learn after the first test how to study. He was helpful, as I bombed a test, but was able to get his help in doing a few extra credit assignments and also just get to know him. I got an A-. I recommend him to everyone I know, and even to you guys.   posted on May 1, 2012
  I cannot fathom how anyone could recommend Hist 107. Painful, mind numbing memorization of names and dates for the tests. At least you don't have to do any thinking beyond that. Lectures are beyond boring - sure he is "passionate" I guess but if your most interesting class at UNC has been memorizing ten trillion popes and kings and the dates when they sat around pulling their pudding, I sincerely pity you.   posted on May 3, 2012
  Bar none the best teacher and class I've had at Carolina.   posted on June 5, 2012
  I am very confident that the people saying he is the best professor they have had at Carolina are freshmen and haven't had very many professors. I took the class last year as a junior and he is one of those "cool" professors that is easy to talk to and makes jokes that college kids would appreciate (Monty Python, Game of Thrones, etc), but take it from someone who has had some great professors, Whalen is not one of them. I made an A in the class but the workload was high for a 100 level class, and he really doesn't post any relevant information to help you study for tests. If you are a furious note taker who can get down everything he says, you'll be golden. If you aren't a good note taker I'd caution you to stay away (I learned the hard way...did bad on the first test and spent the rest of the semester digging myself out of a hole). Expect a lot of names and dates and not a lot of critical thinking. Also, he didn't let our class use laptops and he forced us to come to class and sign in with a TA. Honestly this was one of the more disappointing history classes I've taken at Carolina but a lot of people I talked to in the class loved it so...good luck   posted on September 17, 2012
