POLS230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

While she obviously cares about what she is teaching, Dr. Hunter does not care about who she is teaching to. Her exams have nothing to do with what she teaches in class and she is a difficult grader. She gives you "open book" quizzes online but asks questions you would never be able to find unless you read the chapter multiple times.

pols230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

the tests were hard, but i passed all of them with an A because i read and took notes on the chapters in the books and studied that, not what she taught in class.

Dr. Hunter is very passionate about her work in environmental policy, but has trouble getting her students to want to learn the material for themselves. Exams are essay and very difficult, rarely relating directly to matters discussed in class.

If you looking for an easy A, DON'T TAKE THIS CLASS. This class is ridiculous. She tells you to read tons of info, but none of it applies. I would write tests answers WORD for WORD from her lecture, and still she takes off points. Her definition of a 'short paper' is 15+ pages. She is very nice, but oblivious to the world around her.

POLS338 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

kind of demanding class. lot of things to do. there would be a mid$final exam, small quizzes&homework, a research paper, and an activity which requires you to do something related to environmental protection. For this activity, You are required to do public presentation.

POLS271 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Has a great deal of knowledge, but her class wasn't very interesting. Very stiff grader too; she'll reprimand you for not putting enough details on tests, even when you thought you memorized EVERYTHING.

PS 338 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Lots of notes...but tests don't even seem to cover most of the notes you take. She'll test you on stuff that doesn't seem like test material...not on stuff she bullets on the board. Also, everyone seems to get a "B" on everything...
