Anonymous Comments from Course Evaluations

[International Political Economy]
“Minju did a great job breaking down the core concepts in the readings without getting too much into the weeds/too detailed. Each week we made a table comparing all the readings with relatively simple categories: central argument, independent variable, dependent variable, limitations, connections to other literature, but it made a huge difference in understanding how the readings are linked. Additionally, she also helped us understand a lot of the statistical methods used in the papers, and made it very accessible to people who did not have that background.”

[Game Theory I]
“In this course, I learned the fundamentals of game theory. In essence, this course taught me how to solve strategic games, and how to model real–world events as strategic games. More broadly, I gained a new, quantitative lens through which to view human decisions.”

“Minju is a very engaging lecturer, and the class easily developed an almost conversational aspect with students asking questions or adding comments.”

“Minju’s clear and interactive lecturing style did a great deal to help us understand the complexities of game theory. In particular, her willingness to look up answers to our more complex questions, presenting them in the next class period, was remarkably helpful and unprecedented in my time in the College. Finally, her supplemental readings did a great deal to maintain my interest and help me understand the theory through its applications.”
