Ratemyprofessors: "A down to earth hilarious professor; taking his class in the future and learned a lot more from his Friday discussions on life than I did in other classes. More than a professor, a mentor." "Goodhearted guy who wants you to learn and mentors kids in what little free time he has."
One of USC's most prominent faculty, Dr. Lamy has won over 20 teaching awards at USC, including professor of the year four times. His areas of expertise include international relations theory, foreign policy analysis, and the foreign policies of the Western nation-states, with over 40 published articles and books in those topics.
