Theories of Religion
Spring 2021 - One of Professor Kaufman's greatest strengths is her genuine concern for student learning. It was clear to all of us throughout the quarter that she wanted us to succeed and would put her best foot forward to help us earn a good grade. Though lectures are pretty hard to stay focused throughout as there are no slides or concrete structures, Professor Kaufman's office hours are beyond helpful and she offers many extra credit opportunities. It is no doubt, however, that you have to earn your grade in this class. The workload/pace is overwhelming, and the midterm, quizzes, and papers are quite exhaustive. This will definitely be the most demanding class compared to whatever else you're taking in any given quarter, so choose wisely when you enroll. Professor Kaufman is a wonderful person and a great professor who shows genuine interest in the material. Just know that this is not an easy class, but you will be proud of yourself once you get through it!
