PHL205 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Assignments galore"

Very unorganized, changed course content and requirements several times throughout the course, very unprofessional and confusing to a student. Grading all over the place for the same effort put in! (How can you grade personal opinion?) DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! Uninspiring and showed no personal knowledge of subject. Zero variety in course content.

Makes what I thought was going to be an unbearable class pretty bearable instead... maybe even pretty interesting! She's very enthusiastic and can keep your attention.

PHIL205H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class would've been gouge-my-eyes-out-boring if Professor Mussett didn't teach it. SHE IS AWESOME!! She jumps around and packs passion and humor into every perfectly-thought-out lesson. She values everyone's opinions is just so grand. Though her course was easy, it was impossible not to learn a lot... she is just the best teacher ever. ahhhh!!

Shannon knows what she's talking about and has a love for it. She is very energetic and enthusiastic, which makes the class entertaining. The readings are mandatory but also very interesting. She's a great teacher and a very interesting person.

Just a forum class, but Shannon was awesome. Only interest is helping students succeed and grow. She's a freaking amazing lady, UVU is lucky to have her.

Oh Shan. She is a great teacher with a lot of interest in both what she does and the people she teaches. I've learned the most from this class than in any other. She's tough but gives great feedback. I wouldn't hesitate to take another class form her again!

I loved Shannon as a professor. She's interesting to listen to, and knows what she is talking about. She is willing to work with students if they need help, and she's understanding. If you want to do well in the class you need to attend class and read the books she assigns. Other than that, the class is easy and interesting.

if you like deep discussions this is the class for you. we talked about several different philosophers and read their works. i had a lot of fun in her class but if you like to just sit back in class and dont want to work or read dont take her class. its easy if you do the reading and study. she was funny and relates really well to students.

Shannon is the best professor I have had. I learned so much from her. It is clear that she knows her stuff and knows how to teach it so her students will understand as well. I can't wait to take Modern Legacies with her! You need to do your reading and she requires a lot of participation but that adds to the greatness of her class!

I've had Shannon before, and she is one of the best professors in the world. Taking her for Early Modern Philosophy is no different. You will learn a lot. Take as many of her classes as you can.

Shannon is simply the best!!! Her papers are reasonable and she will work with you to improve. She values participation and encourages it in her classes. She helps you understand and really cares that you're learning something, but doesn't expect you to be an expert. The study guides are life savers.

Prof. Mussett is clear and concise. I wouldn't say that the class was easy but it's pretty intense. She is super organized, gets students involved--can't be shy, requires a lot of reading that is relevant to the class, attendance is a must and besides nothing would be clear and concise if one doesn't attend classes, she brings joy and comfort to th

Existentialism and Phenomenology is very interesting, but the way Shannon teaches it makes it 500x more interesting. Take her classes, high energy, challenging, and really fun. You'll be a better student after her class.

What can I say other than I am fully in love with Shannon Musset and her philosophy class. This course had serious such potential but Shannon is so amazing. She is an incredible person and it shines through her teaching. Take her, love her.

Shannon is a professor you must take if you enjoy being challenged and like discussing a variety of views without feeling like you have to agree with the prof. She loves the topics she teaches and loves to teach and it comes across in the enthusiasm she brings to class every day. She is not easy but will give you what you need to succeed.

Shannon is one of the best teachers I've had in 5 years! She loves her work and it shows--she is very excited about the material and it is fun to be in her class even though it was one of the most challenging classes I've ever had. The work was not easy but I would take another class from her in a heartbeat. A must have prof in your time at UVSC.
