HIST3395 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. D is my favorite professor on campus. She's an easy grader and makes class very interesting and entertaining. I have taken her twice, and wish I could take her again! You don't have to go to class, but why wouldn't you want to? I highly recommend her!

WOST 2350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She was a great professor and class was always very interesting. I enjoyed most of the topics that were discussed. She is awesome but beware. She will overload you with work at the end of the semester because she does not follow her syllabus and then tries to catch up at the end. This course required a lot of reading and writing.

HIST 3378 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

EXCELLENT professor! She is a great discussion moderator, and is so good at making such a serious subject understandable and even humorous. She's really funny! Her assignments aren't that hard and she's a pretty easy grader. One of my favorite profs at UH for sure.

Modern ME-> Dr. Dina is awesome. Her style is engaging and fun; the readings were interesting and fairly easy, but you are required to write a paper for each book. She went out of her way to be objective about the Middle East (kinda frustrating, but I prefer a little bit of opinion in my profs). Overall, a very enjoyable class. Recommended.

wost3250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is not your conventional professor, very eccentric lady. She is very flexible with due dates and keeps the class interesting. I would have liked a little bit more small group projects to get to meet the people in the class, but overall women studies is worth taking with this professor.

WOST2350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

TAKE THIS PROFESSOR! Easily the best professor I've had at the University of Houston. She was extremely flexible with due dates and let out class 30 minutes early every single class. I was never stressed about her assignments. There are a lot of small writing assignments, but they are very simple and if you attend class they are extremely easy!

WOST2350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I don't care about WOST at all, but Dr. Dina is able to create really interesting discussions. I totally thought this class was going to be about female empowerment, but really it has you question (in a positive way) what your beliefs are and why you believe in them. There is a lot of writing in this class, but it is all very simple. I got an A

WOST0000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I don't care about women studies at all, but Dr. Dina made it interesting. Her intro class wasn't about feminism, which I was afraid of, but rather to question and understanding the status quo. There was a lot of reading and writing involved, but it was easy. The whole course was easy, I recommend it if you need the credit. Dr. Dina is great.
