Very nice woman. Genuinely interested in the field. Cares about her students and is always available for help -she gives you her private cell # and returns calls. Good class.

This professor is really knowledgeable. She knows her subject and always happy to answer the questions. Her course is very well structured and organized. She asks to do the readings and BB postings, but in the end those are extremely helpful for learning.

A couple of points about Prof. Danto. Students preferred Dr. Danto's lectures to the discussion because she has such amazing knowledge and scholarship; she used "abstract language" because this was a Theory course and she was teaching from primary sources. Sure, go try another HBSE professor. You'll come running back to Danto.

She says it herself, she wears her opinions on her sleeve! But that's what going to school is all about, right? Being pushed by passionate people. She holds high standards, but is understanding. I really enjoyed her class, would recommend her to anyone.

I really enjoy Professor Danto's class. Yes-- she is opinionated, but admittedly so. However, she is clearly brilliant and has helped me break down the opinions I have in order to understand where my (and people I disagree with's) belief systems are coming from.

Overly outspoken and opinionated and rarely examines validity in anything other than what she believes.

Extremely knowledgable but would be better as a lecturer, not a facilitator of what should be a discussion class. She is very opinionated and disregards student comments that she disagrees with. She has to have an answer for everything and never turns it back to the class for discussion. She also speaks in extremely vague terms.

I've decided to post some comments now that I've graduated. All current and future students should know that Prof. Danto is Hunter's top teacher. Some find her daunting at first but then they realize that they are LEARNING stuff, and I can't say the same of all profs at the school. She's totally worth the hard work.

Prof Danto is the real thing. She's Hunter's best, tough but a good person and a brilliant woman.

Wonderful teacher. Very approachable and helpful. Expects students to show up prepared for class. If you want to learn HBSE this is the class to take.

Incredible professor. Challenging, stretching, encouraged dialogue. Provided a "safe" environment for all to participate. Going into school I was least excited about this class but at the end of the year it is the class I learned the most from. The quality of work that is expected is high.

Professor Danto is fantastic! As far a difficulty goes, you're expected to read everything, but you're also respected for your opinion and challenged. Professor Danto is highly recommended for HBSE and every classmate I talked to felt the same way. Enjoy!

I think she's a good professor. She's very smart and the course was interesting. Make sure you do your readings before class because she does call on her students. We had two papers and a group project.
