PHIL 1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

Corvino was an excellent lecturer. He kept the class engaged and interesting. Definitely read the course pack and participate in class. Discussion portion seemed a bit pointless to me sometimes however the lecture itself was wonderful. Exam questions were confusing and tricky at time but the workload is not much!

PHI 1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Invokes discussion, and provides useful feedback. My only issue is the amount of reading, and the exams require you to remember specific points from all readings. TA's do the grading so be sure to ask them what they look for! Not the easiest course, but Corvino's lectures are sure to get you thinking about things from a new perspective. Smart guy.

PHI1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professional Ethics was maybe the most interesting and engaging class I have taken at Wayne. Corvino wanted us to be involved in the discussion and found a way to make a potentially boring subject really interesting. If you came to class and read the material then you were pretty much set up for an A. I definitely recommend a class with him.

PHI1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

One of my favorite courses at WSU! Corvino is very engaging has a light personality, which gets you interested in the material. Make sure to keep up on all the readings and come to every class as his insight into the readings gives much clarity. Very helpful when needed. Exams are not difficult if you follow the readings and notes he gives.

Dr. Corvino is very smart individual and a good professor. His course was fair. There are a lot of readings so make sure to keep up with them and actually understand them. Four exams (all with the same weight) make up the grade, so prepare well in advance for them.

Good teacher, class isn't too hard. Only problem I had was my final grade was an 89.7% and I still got a B+! Oh well...

Some of this stuff can be confusing or not interesting for most people. There are a lot of readings so be prepared. The number one mistake is not showing up to class. His lectures and class discussions give a lot more clarity to the content. Not bad, but kind of a demanding prof.

PHI101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Extremely difficult professor for a general education course requirement. Gives WAY TOO MANY readings and does not understand that we have other classes and majors. His exams are too tricky. Do NOT take him if you want an A.

I had John Corvino for Contemporary Moral Issues, and it was by far my favorite class taken at Wayne. He is hilarious and makes discussions fun. He is open to everyone's opinion and does not force his on you. Overall an excellent professor! Strongly recommended!
