Cons: Professor is boring or bland

Dr. Libal is such a sweet lady and really cares about her students; she really went out of her way to get to know everyone (she gave you extra credit for bringing her a photo of yourself and writing some interesting things about yourself on the back). She's very knowledgeable and very nonjudgemental; she likes to hear everyone's opionion. Sometimes the class is boring, but we really hit a lot of interesting topics, like when we studied the AIDS pandemic in Africa. This class is really easy and, essentially, if you know how to write a thesis paper and use good evidence, you're almost guaranteed an A. Besides, she's very relaxed with her grading and she doesn't get angry when no one does the reading (not to mention she likes to show movies a lot). I really enjoyed this class and I recommend it for anyone who wants to take an easy but semi-interesting gen-ed course.

Best professors I've ever had!
Professor Libal is one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met in my entire life. Not to mention she is extraordinarily intelligent and not only does she know everything about her field, but she is also very experienced as she has worked overseas in projects with her field which further pad her resume as a college professor. She is always willing to help and it is a complete joy to talk to her at any time. Going to her office hours was one of the top ten things I have done at UConn just because of the knowledge she spits out at you accompanied with her unbelievable personality. If you are interested in her field of work take her class and you absolutely will NOT regret it. Best professor I have ever had up to this point in my college tenure.

Pros: Good professor.

Great teaching methods/approach

the sweeteest lady, honestly. definitely cares about her students. if you hand in a paper late, even though she says in the begining she will drop it by a letter grade, she never does. soooooo disgustingly easy, and yet the conversations are really eye opening and shocking. easy to get a+'s on papers and she doesn't give a midterm OR a final, you just need to write an 8 page paper for the final, and as long as you write what you truly believe, you will get an a. Definitely the sweetest lady at uconn, and very easy. you can take this class as far as you'd like, if you are looking for an easy a it's quite attainable and if you're looking for a class on women's rights and to learn more about the subject, she has a great knowledge of the subject all the same!!

Take her WS124 class, it's incredibly easy. At the beginning of every class, she'll ask "Did anyone do the reading?" And when no one raises their hand, she doesn't get mad. There are no quizzes or tests, and the few short papers aren't graded rigorously. She's also got a lot of knowledge of the subject, so if you really are interested in this class (and not just taking it as a GenEd) she can definitely answer your questions.

Kathy is awesome! I love her! She has so much to offer. You should go and talk to her during office hours etc. you can learn so much. Everyone on here is calling her sweet, and it is true! She is an amazing person who really cares about the world. I don't think there is a negative thought or vibe in her. She's excellent. I recommend her 100%.

The work load isn't bad. No exams, just papers and free writes, which are easy to do well on. Class is very interesting and was not at all what I expected it to be. The professor is very sweet, caring, and loves to hear opinions. I would definitely recommend this class as a gen ed requirement and for anyone interested in the field.

i took her women's studies 124 class, and it was one of the best classes i've ever taken. one of the best parts of the class was all the open discussions. she really encourages you to speak your mind in class. she doesn't give tests or quizzes, and there are only a few papers, and not too much reading. she's very interesting, and always kept my attention while she was teaching. take her class!

Professor Libal is so incredibly nice. Her class is mainly discussions and she uses excellent readings and short documentary clips to enforce the current class topics. Her class was very interesting, I learned a lot, and she is very open to questions and wants to hear everyone's opinion.

Professor Libal is without a doubt the sweetest professor I've ever had. She recently moved from the Midwest, but she's adapting well to Connecticut! She is a social anthropologist whose specialty is Turkey (she speaks Turkish!). Her manner of teaching is excellent because she posts her lecture up on WebCT beforehand and carefully explains everything. She definitely loves questions. :) She'll learn your name if you talk to her often. Overall, she's a great person, and a fitting professor to learn about the world from.

don't be scared to take a women's studies class, especially 124 - professor libal is so nice and really cares about what she is teaching. you can email her anytime with questions about the homework or extra credit movies and she responds quite quickly. she really opens your eyes to issues all over the world and has a lot of personal experience from her travels. i would definately recommend her!

Wonderful professor, for POLS 296, Intro to Human Rights. Taught with Professor Hertel, she does an excellent job with the class, just seems a bit jumbled with lectures, but nothing that can't be followed if readings are completed. Good Professor!
