British Lit Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Papers? More like novels" "Participation matters" "Tough Grader"

I would never take him again. He was the biggest mistake of college. My GPA is now messed up thanks to him and his harsh grading. He expects to write a novel for essays and his comments arent helpful their criticizing. He isn't helpful and is rude. I would not recommend him at all.

LIT319 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He's a great professor who is very fair. If you come prepared to class, follow instructions, and take his advice you'll do great and learn a lot. Don't think you can fake your way through the class- you actually have to do the work and back up your interpretations.

Avoid. He is nothing but a narcissistic, condescending bully. He'll verbally attack you for no reason.

Best class I've taken at Pace! Dr. Hussey is brilliant! I really understand how to write lit crit after taking this class. I even kinda like reading it! Some people in the class didn't ever read, though, and that made discussions difficult and annoying sometimes. I think Dr. Hussey should quiz or something to make the lazy students read.

He's a good professor, he will engage the class and can be very understanding. If you go to class ready to learn, do all of your reading and engage, all will be well. One of the best professors in the department, if you ask me.

Lit211W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Halfway through the semester in his class, so far I think all the negative comments concerning Prof. Hussey are from people who don't do the work in the class. You need your books, they are your life in that class and make sure you read and spend time with your papers and such.

LIT373 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He's a really nice guy and just wants his students to have some original thoughts. He lets you revise papers, plus some short (1-2) page papers- but again, as long as you say SOMETHING you'll get a good grade.

WS380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This class was not for slackers. It has been one of my most enriching classes. The thing about Dr. Hussey is that it is YOUR not his or the other classmates role to bring the text to life. He is quite brilliant and he expanded on our thoughts and questions. Yes the text we read were often very erudite. My fellow classmate that was not happy I w

WS380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Hussey is a good professor, however I didn't enjoy WS 380. I found the material to be dry and some days making discussion was like pulling teeth. Hussey is very intelligent and helpful, but the class itself was tedious. I love him, but hate the class.

I don't understand the person who felt Dr. Hussey's class was boring and I certainly don't feel he gives feminism a bad name. The class was informative and interesting. Dr. Hussey explains everything so pay attention and you'll be fine.The less than stellar review was likely from a student didn't want to work, and had nothing interesting to say

Dr. Hussey is the kind of professor that gives feminism/women's studies a bad name. He's rude, boring, and his class was outdated and dry. Plus, he encouraged a lot of discussion and participation, but the people in my class were morons, and I wasn't taking the class to listen to overly talkative idiots give their misinformed opinions on feminism.

I learned so much from this class and from Dr. Hussey. He's helpful, smart, and really sarcastic. If you consider yourself a feminist in any way TAKE this class. It's a lot of work, you might complain about it, but you won't be sorry at the end of the semester. And you'll love Hussey.

This is absolutely the best professor I have had a Pace. The classes are never boring and the texts he chooses are always interesting. Also, he is a truly caring professor. Should you find yourself with any questions he will not hesitate to help you. Take Him!

Great Professor, I can't emphasize this enough. Class is always intellectually stimulating. You really gain a good understanding of the literature and how to write. Also, he is always willing to help you out if you're having trouble with any issues that may arise in class. Take him!

Lit 211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

An incredibly intelligent and all around amazing Professor. Kind and truly caring, though with a Brit edge. He is patient, extremely knowledgeable, and has a true heart. A fair grader, and truly challenging. He teaches life skills as well as English/Lit skills. You can make a good friend/advisor. Respect and earn respect in return.

WS380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Prof likes to dissect readings line by line&expects students2do the same. Class is tedious&dull&we don't have a clue. If he gave us an idea of what2discuss in the readings for the next class then we would be more prepared, instead he blames us. This class is awful&hard. I waited a year hoping for a diff prof, but no luck. Nice guy,GPA buster :-(

As long as you do your work well then you're safe. Don't screw around with him and you'll be fine. He's not difficult but he doesnt tolerate slacking off in the least.
