This course was fantastic! It was supposed to take six weeks, but I just couldn't stop myself and, before I knew it, I'd finished the whole thing in two sittings! I study a lot of history, and Thomas Jefferson has always been a favorite of mine. Even so, I learned SO much in this course. Plus the lecturer, Mr. Onuf, was engaging, insightful, and very knowledgeable. I give this one two very hearty thumbs up.

Professor Onuf is very knowledgeable on all things Jefferson. I thought the course would be more of a history of Jefferson's life, not his ideals and how he felt about things, but I found the class very interesting anyway. The class was very easy and enjoyable to take.

Dr. Peter S. Onuf is a very good professor. His is very informative on Jefferson and there is enough changes in the lectures to keep you interested. Good course to take if your good at self discipline.

I enjoyed the course very much. I am and have been a "fan" of Jefferson for about 25 years. It was interesting to get an deeper understanding of his views on a variety of topics. I thought Jefferson was one dimensional with regard to religion; being a deist and a destroyer of the bible. I learned he was much more of a religious person. His views on slaves intrigued me for his plan to set them free. I was not aware of that side of him. Overall, it was excellent!!!
