"Clear grading criteria"

Mahon's class is like any other online class with work load. If you have any questions or help he is always helpful. Every week there is a quiz, a discussion post and a post responding to someone else. There is an essay in the middle of the semester and at the end. Just do all the work, do not skip out on assignments and you should get a good grade

Dr. Mahon does a fantastic job incorporating art, religion, ethnicity, and sex in the lesson. The class is a bit challenging if you are not disciplined to read the works and thoroughly analyze them. The class is straightforward. The same assignments are due on the same day at the same time each week. The professor really cares about his students.

The class is interesting but this guy is a creep. Be careful with him. He is unsavory at best.

Mr. Mahon is a great professor. The best I have ever had in my RCC experience. He is nice and always answers any questions and comments you have in a very timely manner. I really enjoyed him, I wish other professors would follow his example.

Professor Mahon gives a lot of work, but it is to be expected since it was an online class. Keep up with the readings and you will receive a good grade. He responds to emails in a timely manor.

Dr. Mahon is a very nice and sweet professor. He loves his job and he is very helpful and clear. His tests are easy but will be difficult if you do not read the assigned readings. He respects everyone and their opinions. Highly recommend him for all his courses. A+

This class was hard at first until I started actually doing the reading. It's difficult to get if you don't read any of the voorst or smith book. I took it over the summer and it was hard with all of the reading. The two essays were pretty easy though

I took his online humanities course. We had to read a few short stories and one novel for this course, in addition to his written lectures. He's a very nice professor, and puts in plenty of effort on his end. I didn't put in enough effort and earned my D. I recommend this instructor.

Cool professor who responds in a timely fashion and give TONS of helpful feedback. There is a TON of reading for this online class, so timewise it felt like it was taking more than 3 units. Subject matter was interesting, but I like humanites. No exams, but there are weekly essay quizzes timed for 30 min. & weekly writing assignments.

Prof. Mahon is a very nice and helpful teacher. He assigns a lot of reading. If you keep up on the reading, you'll be fine. There is work assigned on a weekly basis and essays. He does not give any exams. He communicates well with the students and he responds to emails in a timely manner. I recommend Prof. Mahon!

Are you American? Take this class. Not an American? Take this class. He shows how we developed socially and artistically as a nation. It's like a history, art and lit. class all rolled into one. Best class ever; best prof. ever! Lot of reading and writing. If you can make it past the 2nd week, you can finish with flying colors.

The online World Religions course I took was very enriching. As an atheist, I found the study of the different religions fascinating due to the way Dr. Mahon presented the information, and with the text books he has selected for use with the course.

Dr. Mahon is a really interesting person. This class title is what caught me (Death) and it turned out to be really informative. He does tend to go on tangents, but thats the beauty of it. There are no tests, just 4 essays and the weekly quizzes (on the reading assigned from the previous class) and DO THE READING!!! This class is really fun.

Alot of reading is required for the class inorder to do the four essays. There are no test just quizzes every class meeting and the class is mainly lecture based. Class is very easy but professor can go off topic at times.

Pretty easy class and friendly professor, although he tends to run off on tangents a lot, all you have to do is show up and listen. There are no multiple choice tests just 4 five page essays that you have plenty of time to write and a short answer quiz for each day of class.
