ENGL M104C, taken Fall 2019 Submitted Jan. 4, 2021 Grade Received: A

She was an amazing professor and the works she assigned were informative and thought-provoking. The class discussions were great. She would pass around papers, literary documents, excerpts from historical documents, and other outside resources to help us understand the readings and certain themes that may go unnoticed. My only issue was that she tends to cut you off while you're talking which is kind of nerve-wracking when you're trying to get your point across. Also, if you do take her then go to her office hours.

ENGL 136, taken Winter 2019 Submitted Oct. 30, 2020 Grade Received: A

Mullen is a hidden gem in the UCLA English department. Very knowledgeable, a fantastic poet. At first, I didn't like that her poetry workshops were more structured than others I'd taken but after a while I learned to appreciate the prompts and challenges to try out specific forms.

Professor Mullen is not engaging at all. I've learned much more difficult material with much better teachers, but I came away from this class with almost no additional knowledge on the topic. Easy class, but literally not worth the time.

ENGL 173C, taken Fall 2018 Submitted Feb. 3, 2019 Grade Received: A-

This class is a waste of time. I'm sure she has a lot of experience and knowledge, but I didn't see the point of coming to class. We would come in, talk about a poem or two, she'd talk a little, students would present, and we would pull explanations out of her asses. She wasn't clear on how we were being graded AT ALL. The syllabus was very vague. There was only ONE essay which is the final (15 pages). Could've easily taken a better Professor

Professor Mullen is the shit. She's funny and the books she has us read are interesting. Papers aren't graded too hard but the TA mostly does that anyway so its impossible to comment on her fairness. If you have a chance, take a class with this wonderful woman.

PROFESSOR MULLEN IS BY FAR ONE ON THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENTS MOST CREATIVE AND ENJOYABLE PROFESSORS. MULLEN IS EAGER TO HEAR HER STUDENTS COMMENTS AND IS ALWAYS OPEN FOR NEW IDEAS. HER WORK LOAD IS JUST RIGHT. HER OFFICE HOURS ARE ALWAYS OPEN AND SHE IS EASY TO TALK TO. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROFESSOR IF YOU DONT TAKE HER YOU WILL TRULY MISS OUT.

Mullen is by far the most liberal and creative teacher in the English Dept. If you need to be told what to do, how to write, and how to think, do not take her class. She will not push her ideas on you, nor will she hold your hand to figure out your own. If you do not read the material, you could probably still get a B in her class--which is both good and bad for you. Take her class only if you have a genuine affection for poetry. If you are the structure-oriented type, you will be frustrated in her class. If you are a beginner in poetry, her class is also very friendly and will help you figure out what poetry is...which is different for everyone (in Mullen's opinion).

I disagree with the other students comments. I took Professor Mullen's Afro American Poetry class (M 197A) and I thought she was an excellent teacher. She really made the poetry interesting. She is very knowledgeable about Poetry and the way she taught it, not only allowed us to learn about it, but have fun with it. The class was difficult because the only way to succeed in it was to really read the poetry and be able to present it in front of the class (we were required to present because it was a seminar), but it was totally worth it. She's very concerned with students learning and ablity to grasp and understand the information, and she is a fair and decent grader. I would recommend her class to anyone.

Mullen's English 174 class (modern poetry) was the worst class I've ever taken at UCLA. The class lacked structure, or anything relating to structure. I dreaded going to the class and often found myself falling asleep or working on homework for other classes. I dreaded going to the class and only found myself going because, in true elementary school style, roll was taken. If you're looking for an easy A, take this class. But, if you're going to UCLA to be engaged and actually learn something, don't.

This professor is by far one of the worse professors I'v had at UCLA. She is boring, unprepared, cluttered and difficult to access outside of class. Her class is a joke, based on participation and the final is a 10+ paper, if you bomb the paper, you're pretty much done. Don't be surprised to get a C in class you thought you could have easily gotten an A in.
