I have taken many English courses before and I can honestly say she is the WORST professor I have ever had. This may be the first class that I do not get an A in. She is judgmental, rude, and arrogant. Shame on Fordham for hiring her. I expect better.

Be prepared to be bombarded with work. I am taking her course for my EP2 (T&C W & I in Africa) requirement and am having an awful experience. She is the epitome of elitist academic - lots of knowledge but to who does it benefit? Certainly not the disenfranchised people we're studying. Lectures are very esoteric. Don't waste your time or money.

She is really nice and extremely intelligent but the class is very difficult and sometimes the lectures are hard to follow. Be prepared for tons of reading, I felt that this should have been a graduate level course. But she is really willing to help you outside of class.

Although the course work was interestng I feel like her input was very bia's to her own situation. I took a caribbean lit class and she focused alot on the sexuaity of th readings which wasnt highlighted by the writers but emphasized alot by her. I just found the discussions annoying.

Mustafa... so many things to say. I did not enjoy the class whatsoever, as my roommate and I would always do a "countdown to hell" as we walked into our 3 hour 8:30 am class. The texts were interesting and I learned some. In recollection this class was beneficial to me, but Mustafa is one of the most boring teachers I've had.

Mustafa makes it about the education, not the grade. She doesn't deserve the bad rap whatsoever. She's a hard teacher, particular, and expects a lot, but if you are sick of hearing your writing is good then take her and actually learn something.

Very interesting text for this class. It expanded my interest level in topics in society a lot. But, she is a tough grader, and a very smart individual. Participation is key in her classes.

If you are like the majority of the Fordham student body and prefer to take classes where you don't have to read much or think hard, then don't take a class with Mustafa. She is outrageously smart and her readings are challenging. Her breadth of knowledge is intimidating, but she isn't. If you want to learn, take one of her classes.

Could have picked some better readings, but all in all good. Difficult grader, but really knows her stuff. Get on her good side by participating and showing your interest in the topic. If she knows you don't care, she won't care much for you. Helped me out a lot and wrote great recommendations.

you've got to be able to take some abuse, but the bottom line is, she's a fantastic and highly intelligent professor. if you take her class seriously and show genuine interest you will learn an immense amount. those who whine about her strictness probably did not receive a good grade. don't skip class, do EVERY assignment, and you will fare well.

Very accomodating towards students. Any rudeness comes from nervousness. Don't take her personally--has a jittery constitution

I found her to be extremely rude. Way too demanding. Condescending towards students. My advice, stay away from MUSTAFA!!!! You are better off, especially if you are female.

Mustafa gives too much work and she is ALWAYS unclear. She um um ums all day long and is too tough a grader. If its not exactly what she thinks it should be, don't expect a good grade. Avoid her like the plague.

Intimidating, but knows her stuff. Really likes to see students do well and participation is a huge thing with her, so do all your reading and double check your paper 8 times
