About Victor

I have a BA in History with a minor in English and an MA in Govt-Political Science with a minor in History. I have been teaching as a Professor of Government/Political Science and American Dilemmas for eleven years at the College/University level. American Dilemmas is a multi-disciplinary, pre-capstone course taught to juniors and seniors covering issues spanning Sociology, Ethics, History and Political Science and requires a 15-page research paper. I also have eight years of service/experience in Federal and State government which enhances my ability to teach authoritatively.

I currently teach a multi-disciplinary (mix of Political Science/Economics/History) online course to up to 120 students. As Online Course Lead, I gather input from other professors for course improvements, structural changes and fixes and submit input to Campus Course Lead for execution. I also mentor new faculty members.

In the past, I have taught introductory US Government, Texas and Local Government courses to classes of up to 36 students. This consisted of lectures up to twice a week and administering exams and evaluating research papers.
