Phil3000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She was ridiculous. The class centered around conversations that had nothing to do with our readings and she made us go to outside meetings constantly that also had nothing to do with our readings or papers. She's a generally nice woman but her grading system is ridiculous. If you like philosophy she'd be good but not if you care about your gpa.

Phil1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Hughes is a very nice woman. Took her for Intro to Philosophy. She is very passionate about philosophy and is a tough grader. She is also very helpful and will help you with your papers. If you are willing to work hard, you can get a good grade in that class.

PHIL1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher. Cares a lot about her students and loves her subject. Readings can be tough and there are a lot of papers but if you ask her she will help you a ton. One of the best teachers I have ever had, do not pass up a chance to take her class.

PHILO1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

hughes is nice and means well... try to participate overall, she makes a pretty hard subject fairly clear she can be picky in papers but if you write it before its due she will give you corrections you can make and then you end up getting somthing in the b+ ,A range .... not super easy, but i would reccomend her

PHRU1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a nice person without a doubt, but very random and abstract in her grading. Most of the assignments are "free writing" but she grades very specifically without saying exactly what she's looking for. I wouldn't say easy A, but you'll pass if you read and are decent at writing.

I agree with the previous post. She is very helpful and explains the material very well. Prof. Hughes just gives 1 midterm, 1 final, 4 writing assignments, and 1 paper. Also, she allowed my class to use the books we read for the midterm and final. My only criticism is that she's picky about detail, so be as specific as possible when writing.

This teacher is AWESOME. She explains everything very well and is always available to make appointments with. She cares about her students well-being and is a fair grader. TAKE HER.
