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

Professor Duggan is easily one of the best professors I have ever had. Incredibly passionate, she teaches in a way that alters your way of thinking. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort to do well though since her class is really reading and writing intensive. She will change your life!

SCA180 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is too political for a classroom setting. She gives her own biased opinions instead of just teaching facts. Not what I expect from an academic atmosphere.

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

I took Intersections. The mandatory attendance is really annoying, but I understand why it's needed. The class itself changed my way of thinking a lot. Prof Duggan is definitely passionate, which is the best thing an instructor can be. One thing: she doesn't do ppt slides, and instead writes notes on the board. So sit in the front and be attentive.

SCA180 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had her (with Gopinath) for Race, Gender and Sexuality in US History. She's a little too political for me at times but she knows a lot about what she's saying and is very accessible.

SOC001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Her teaching style: assigns highly polemical, journalistic style books under the assumption that they are more "accessible," then requires each student to write a book report (and present this report to the class- her idea of active engagement) and all this so that "entitled students" can't get "by on good prose style" (a direct quote from her)
