Statistics Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Hawken is truly special. SPP is lucky to have her, and every student should take her as often as possible. She invests so much of her seemingly inexhaustible time in every student's success while simultaneously performing her own high-stakes save-the-world research

I love Hawken, super intelligent woman and you learn so much from her. Will definitely be taking any class she teaches while I'm at Pepperdine.

MPP 603 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Overall she's a great professor and the topic is very interesting. I had some statistics knowledge prior to the class so I didn't find the material too challenging. SHe gives plenty of opportunities for students to do well in her class. One note , her definition of a "quiz" is a full period test.

Social Policy Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Hawken is my absolute favorite at Pepperdine because out of all the professors, she attempts to help students in a variety of ways from class, to internships, to employment. While I will admit that she isn't the easiest to get ahold of, and often appears frazzled and way too busy, her heart is to teach. Take her class when you get a chance.

Of all the professors at Pepperdine, I was most impressed with Hawken.Not only is she kind and helpful, but very intelligent.Having experience in statistical programs and research methods prior to the class, the subject matter is often difficult to understand & teach (especially in large classes).I learned a great deal and truly enjoyed the class.

Research Method Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Sweet woman, but scattered to the four winds. As a student who scored somewhere in the 46th percentile on GRE math, know that quantitative rigour will not kill you in this class. Most of the math is done for you on a computer program. Class is usually adrift, however, with no clear direction. The saving grace is extremely merciful grading.

This is most unfocuses, unclear class I have ever taken. Hawken is all over the map, unavailable, and you have no idea what to expect from her or from the course. Avoid it at all cost

She is very flighty and jumps from one thing onto another. Also very unclear on assignments and unorganized. She is not very good teacher material. She is better off working for the UN or saving the world with data.
