She's a nice woman, but are we talking about the same prof? Random facts, random notes, random handouts made it hard for me to take this class. I taught me more than she did.

Super nice woman. Scattered. Hard to understand. Stressful to watch. I like her but do not recommend her as a teacher.

HIST 2120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Melanie Murphy is a very nice lady, but unfortunately I came out somehow knowing less about History. Murphy's terribly scattered, confused, and often seems unsure of her own facts- despite being an expert. I've been in several of her classes and I've yet to learn anything.

Most disorganized professor. I am a history major and will never take another class with her again. Scatter brained, disorganized, lost papers, missed DOUBLE DIGIT classes, and MISPLACED RESEARCH PAPERS.

HIST 2119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is so scatter brained it is absolutely ridiculous. There is no possible way to take notes or follow her lectures. She does not keep up with the syllabus and doesn't inform students of cancelled class. She comes to class late and disorganized with no plan. There are only about 10 people in my class and she still doesn't know our names.

HIST Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I just don't know what's going on with Emmanuel if this is the professor the hire for European history. I am so disappointed I can't learn about this type of history because she teaches all of the classes. Idk how she is even employed as a professor. You will not learn a single thing if you take one of her classes. It's too bad bc she's really nice

Waited a year to take it with her, 'cause I heard the other guy was harder. Definitely not worth the wait. Unclear, unorganized, and useless. I want a refund.

Never, ever again. She does not make legible notes and is completely scattered -- always. It did not motivate me to succeed at all.

took multiple classes with Prog Murphy. she is very disorganized and scatterbrained but one of the nicest and brilliant leaders in her field of study. if you talk to her after class or email her she is very helpful at clearing up any confusion. look past her appearance and really pay attention in class and you will really learn. excellent professor

HIST2124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Multiple classes canceled. Multiple assignments "lost" in the office. I left this class knowing less about history and fiction than when I started. Lectures were unclear. Assignments were vague. Did not at all prepare me for MTEL--the reason I took the course.
