I took a class in contemporary philosophy of science with Professor Elliott in Fall of 2015.

Her class is fairly straight-forward; a midterm exam and a final exam, in class, in which you write responses to 3 questions out of a possible 4 or 5. She gives you the questions to study in advance as they appear on the exam, and devotes a whole class to reviewing the exam about a week before. It's very, very, very helpful. She does this for both the midterm and the final.

She assigns quizzes on the reading that are generally easy once a week. They're designed to ensure that you read the articles before class.

Elliott is very good at explaining the readings and is very funny as well. She makes the classroom atmosphere very welcoming. In general, she gives excellent lectures. Beware, though, philosophy of science is definitely one of the harder subjects in philosophy. Bring your "A" game when studying in this class. With that said, Elliott is the perfect person to take this class with. Both Smith and Elliott are good professors, so you can't go wrong in taking philosophy of science with either of them.

It was a privilege to be in her class. I learned something valuable.
