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.

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.

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.

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

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.
