Only one term paper and its only 4 pages. He was essentially a total disappointment. All issues he directed to the TA.

Dry sense of humor, thinks you should know everything the way he does, gives hard study q’s to do, tests are ridiculus. Were these reviews helpful? Level of Difficulty 3. Professor isn’t bad but he is boring.
Khalid Blankinship at Temple University –
Hope you had a good semester. He blankinhsip out huge complicated study? This was my most interesting class of the semester!!! This field is required. Professor Blankinship is a very intelligent man, he is extremely well read and does not have to guess at anything when it comes to history or religion.
Understandable all the time.
I withdrew from this class Makes everything very interesting. Does not meet any student expectations in teaching.
Pretty sure he’s lost touch with reality. Hated the class with a passion because he’s an awful teacher.
There is a paper every other week and the books are mandatory. The depth of his religious knowledge, and historical knowledge is probably not equalled by many people anywhere. Submitted data becomes the property of RateMyProfessors. Would highly NOT recommend. Totally not what we studied the past four years; felt like a waste of time.
He can be difficult because he expects the same thoroughness from your work as he uses in his teaching. Blankinship knows his material. He goes off on tangents, and never returns, he wakes up in the morning and asks himself “what will i rant about today? Once deleted, we can’t bring it back. This guy is something else, he is so smart but he manages to teach almost nothing for an entire semester.
His downfall, is like a lot of Professors, he has taught so long, khaliid he doesn’t really want to do it anymore, and has lost his enthusiasm. They’ll do the same for you. The TA takes attendance, grades all hw, papers, and tests. I think that he is very bias in his teaching. His class is not easy, but if you don’t act like an idiot in class, khlid an extremely kind and generous person, and will talk to you in his office for long periods of time 3 people found this useful 1 person did not find this useful report this rating.
I think he should actually do something. He is the guy that takes 2 hours to tell a 10 minute blankinshio.

The work load was for a higher level course and it was only to satisfy a core requirement. There was A LOT of reading to do and he had very high expectations, but it was very interesting.
Listens to himself speak! Poor class management between students. No ratings found — view all ratings for this professor. Blankinship knows his stuff, but is incredibly boring and gives out ridiculous study guides before tests. I took a religions course and he expected us to know way too much specific information. Not for someone looking for a crash course credit Do not khalidd this class!!! You have to read for hours and hours through three books.
My advice is to take his class seriously and you’ll do fine. Blankinship, as others have said, is extremely knowledgeable on the subjects he teaches, as well as most related subjects. He was not helpful.
