About

Professor Black is an enthusiastic and highly respected instructor whose infectious love for history manifests itself in spirited give-and-take with his students. In addition to incorporating sub-lessons on ethics and morality into his general history courses, Professor Black uses mock trials, class debates, and metaphysical discussions to continually challenge and prepare students for life after college; both professionally, and as educated citizens. Noted by past students for his knowledge, availability, approachability, and support, Professor Black takes great pride in developing a strong rapport with his students and in creating fun and interactive lesson plans. He is currently developing general survey courses on World Mythologies and Military Theory
