Curta is a great teacher that I would definitely take again. The grade for this class was based on 4 pop quizzes and 2 tests midterm and non-cumulative final.
The quizzes are based on the primary readings, so I definitely recommend keeping up with the readings every week theyre not that bad or else you will do poorly on the quizzes. He curtta a brilliant individual who loves history, but he moves way too fast and does a poor job at putting things in perspective, which is necessary for such a dense course.
His pop quizzes are impossible and his attendance policy is unreasonable. I slowly lost interest in this class as the semester went on because his teaching method is chaotic. Most of the reviews don’t seem fair to him. This dude is smart and knows what he’s talking about, however it was difficult for me to keep up with his course when combined with my other courses. He doesn’t set unrealistic expectations, but at the same time he expects us all to work. And his accent is actually easy to understand.
Try and he’ll help. Professor Curta is very knowledgeable and impressive in his field, but I found his class very challenging. The readings were dense and I’m no stranger to long reading assignments and hard to understand in general. Flotin lectures were hard to follow, and not just because of his accent. Quizzes were extremely specific and seemed to come from no where. While Professor Curta is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent, his class was extremely intensive on reading and his pop quizzes seem to be based little on the reading at all.
Format for the entire class was pop quizzes, a midterm, and a final. Hard to understand his accent and follow his powerpoints cueta times especially as he moves very fast.
Florin Curta – Department of History
This professor is awesome at what he does. He is very passionate about what he teaches, which can make him excited at times and go quickly through the lectures. His accent is a bit difficult at first especially if he rushes, but he can definitely be understood if you pay attention. No final, just little tests.
To everyone complaining about Dr. Curta’s accent–he speaks eight languages, and is perfectly comprehensible. He is truly one of the most brilliant people at UF, and any history major would be lucky to learn from him. Curta’s accenthe speaks eight languages, and is perfectly comprehensible. Curta is one of the best teachers I have encountered at UF. He has such a deep passion for history that it really shows in his lectures.

The class wasn’t the easiest I’ve taken, but certainly not difficult. He really pushes his students to learn something, and as long as you remained somewhat interested. You will learn A Cufta Rather than teach about What Is The Good Life, he complies a list of things that he finds interesting and teaches about that instead.
This course is terrible, and Dr. Curta doesn’t make it any better. Curta’s lectures put me to sleep beause they were primary based on history and I am not a fan. Clicker points are used floron attendance, primarily history based, and the answer is usually all of the above Besides that, my TA was great so the weekly discussions were what I got the most out of.
Curta knows what he is talking about But he is a very bad professor for Good Life, all of his lectures are just history-related and can’t help you with the midterm or final. I still can’t answer the question, “what is the good life?
Curta is a very good professor, just not for Good Life.
He uses Tophat so attendance is kinda mandatory. All the clicker questions are history related, only a few of the many we’ve had so far were actually related to the readings. Smokin’ Notes helped me pass the midterm. I stopped going after a few weeks. He cannot make up his mind as to the type of flogin he wants on tests and quizzes. He thinks he is teaching a history class to history majors.

Professor Curta is by far the best history teacher I had at UF. Brilliant teaching, exciting topics, never got bored in his class. He changed my views on history. The best history teacher!
He has amazing lectures and goes out of his way to help students. By far one of my favorite teachers at UF.
Have to attend his classes all of the exam questions and quizzes come from his lectures. Very helpful if you go to office hours. A very knowledgeable and intelligent professor who gives disorganized lectures and follows them with difficult quizzes and exams. This is not a casual class. I would only recommend him to serious history buffs. Ads can be annoying, but they allow us to provide you this resource curra free.
