FAVORITE professor. She is invested and gives all the help that you seek, if you are interested in philosophy, go to her office hours. Very interesting, funny, helpful, caring, and a great teacher. She is the reason I survived my first year of college and I am excited to take more classes with her.

You're going to have to buy a brand new textbook w the online code, but this teacher is worth it. Tests are very easy and straight forward, amber encourages you to explore and learn on your own, but she will challenge you. I am so grateful i got the opportunity to spend philo 1 with her. and she offers tons of extra credit. take her if you can!

Opens your eyes to the environmental destruction of fueling Capitalism and the extinction of biodiversity due to the careless actions of human consumption. Reduce carbon footprint and protect your community with green solutions, breathe better live better, highly recommended class Amber is the best!

This class is a must. This is one of those life-changing classes that you leave taking a piece with you. She sets up her class brilliantly, instead of taking it personally if you missed class/an assignment you would just lose a few points allowing you to prioritize. Wrote a few papers but the movies we had to base them off of were very interesting

Amazing human being! Take this class, whether you're interested in philos or fulfilling IGETC requirements. Dr. Amber's lectures are crazy interesting... Winter session: online quizzes everyday (be prepared to read read read), 2 debate papers, 4 film reflections, and 3 open-book exams. Managed to get an A while taking a second class. TAKE HER!!

This class is SO much work - expect to have a paper due every class - but it is absolutely worth it. Amber is amazing at helping you develop a sense of purpose and understanding about yourself. Be prepared to critically question everything! It's unlike any other class you'll take at SMC and throughout college. Go to Office hours!

She was honestly the best teacher I have had so far! She keeps you interested, explains things clearly, not afraid to speak her mind, and you will look forward to her class. Tests are open book (even the midterm/final), essays for me were the most challenging required much thought. A few online quizzes per week, they help. Take her class!

You need to buy the textbook/access code. Although she doesn't like to be proven wrong, is a little harsh on essays, and is rightfully skeptical of Scholars students, she's very open to others' ideas and tries her best to be compassionate. The quizzes can be a bit tricky but the tests are pretty easy. Gives a lot of ec opportunities.I liked her :)

Best prof I've had yet. She's hilarious, informative, and truly changed my outlook on the world/philosophy. I entered the class with only a slight interest and now I want to take as many philosophy classes possible! She's a rational if not easy grader. It's very easy to get an A in her class.

Amber is an amazing professor. Funny, enthusiastic, makes the class so interesting and fun to be in. Although the material is difficult to understand, I looked forward to her class and loved being there. Great learning environment. She really opens your eyes and does so well. Focus more on what she's saying than her notes!

Amber Katherine opened my eyes to a new horizon, she challenges you in a good way. I got an A in her class, It was pretty easy. She's interesting and funny and just AMAZING in every way. If you want her to like you, GO TO HER OFFICE HOURS! Her office hours are really cool and you learn a lot during them.

My favorite Professor so far! Professor Katherine makes the lecture painless and intriguing. I always looked forward to her class. If you love to debate, this class seals the deal; if not, don't fear as she doesn't demand anyone to step forward. Be sure to take her if possible!

Definitely my favorite professor so far. Amber brings life and humor to a stale topic making you want to actually listen and participate. Do the readings and show up everyday and you'll definitely get no lower than a B in this class

If you do all the work and don't miss any classes, you'll get a B for sure. To get an A, be ready to go for her office hours a lot to revise your papers, speak out in class (read your papers) and do extra credit work. A lot of reading, assignments are due every class (one page essay, single spacing). Take this class if you have lots of free time.

I can sat that this was very unique class. It is pretty boring and uninteresting at first, but you just have to hang on and after half all the fun starts. Pr. Katherine may seems rude at first, but after closer look she is very kind and really caring about everyone who is paying attention. Lots of writing, no final, just paper(about you).

I FOUND PHILOSOPHY INTERESTING BECAUSE SHE MAKES IT SO RELATABLE. 4 PAPERS, 1 COLLAGE, DAILY ASSIGNMENTS. best class ever!! take her, and an A is very very attainable.
