PHIL 2050 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

LOVED HIS CLASS! He cares more about teaching a useful skill (critical thinking) than busy work. Classes were basically him role playing a philosopher, speaking on a particular topic, but always keeping it open to questions & challenges & involvement. One paper, one team debate, take-home final. The rest was actual learning! Opened my mind for sure

PHIL 205G Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mark Hausam is one of the most effective teachers I have had the pleasure of being taught by. He teaches in a way that makes class seam so easy but I learned so much. I began to think differently in my everyday life. This class really did make me better. Didn't use the textbook. Easy A. Attendance isn't mandatory but helpful.

One of the best professors I've ever had! Doesn't try to force your opinion in any direction.He's a little bit weird but you get used to him quickly. Few assignments and readings, a lot of in class discussion. He makes topics very interesting.

It's no secret that pretty much all phil teachers are completely terrible, but Hausam seems to be the exception. There's no brainwashing, forcing ideas on you, converting you to atheism, or the usual garbage. He'll teach you to think logically, and thoroughly prove your arguments. Take your ethics class from him, he's the best at UVU.

His lectures are great! It's especially the type of class to learn how to debate ideas and make you think. The papers are learning how to disagree without causing logical fallacies or imposing ideas. Really changed how I looked at life and how people think. Take this from him to really learn about thinking and ethics!

This teacher was the best professor I have ever had. He makes his classes fun and exciting. Super easy class but makes sure that everyone understands the material. Really makes you think to find out what you believe and why you believe that. This class really helped me. Since this class is required take it from him.

Fantastic professor! One of the most interesting people you will ever meet. Passionate yet clear and logical. Puts a different spin on the concept of ethics and world views. Incredibly enjoyable and useful class!

Easiest class I have ever been to, Mark knows his stuff, and wants everyone to succeed. If every teacher was like Mark at UVU life would be great, I learned a ton.

He knows his stuff and is interesting to listen to. He likes to debate, which is good because it makes you really think about a subject/topic. Going to class is not mandatory, but if you want to have good info for your papers it's good to attend. Do what he askes of you in your papers and you'll get a good grade. I would recommend him to anyone.
