Pros: Absolutely a wonderful teacher! She's always willing to work with you, and there isn't a heavy load required for this class. Her tests are straightforward because she isn't trying to trick you. I hated political science coming into this class, but she has made it so much more enjoyable and bearable. Definitely the best teacher I've had at UGA. You can't go wrong choosing her as a teacher.
Cons: NONE!
Professor Hiers is a doctorate student, so she's young and is very understanding as she knows what it's like to be a student. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. UGA needs more teachers like her!

Pros: Really nice and passionate about what she's teaching about. She's always there to help. You never need the books. There is no breakout either. She's funny too. She tries to make the class as enjoyable as possible.



Tests are super easy if you study your notes.
Cons: Doesn't utilize ELC so you can never see your grades. Doesn't provide the students with reviews of the tests.



The best professor I've had at UGA thus far. She's great and she makes the subject fun to learn.

Pros: Super fun, keeps on topic
Cons: It's Political Science ;)
Honestly, Hiers is the best Political Science teacher. She knows that most of us are taking the class to graduate. You don't need the book, and she hardly makes you learn anything out of the Georgia Reader. There are 2 Assignments - honestly, they were really straightforward and easy to complete.



You want her as a teacher - it makes taking POLS 1101 so much more bearable!

Pros: Easy tests- straight from notes

Projects help boost your grade

Cons: None, fabulous teacher!
I've made an A on every test. You do have to listen during lecture, but it's so straight forward. If you take good notes, you'll do great! She repeats herself too and has powerpoints. Great recommendation! And I have retained everything I've learned.

New teacher that knows how to help. Made a 115 on my first quiz and 104 on the second, which gave me extra credit towards the final exam. All A's on exams with no studying. She gave extra credit that summed up to around +10 on the final exam. Easy A. No outside work required.

Pros: Easy class! She's isn't boring and neither is the class. She is patient so she doesn't mind repeating what she said. Definitely participate in class because she likes having a little discussion going on. Overall I definitely recommend her for political science.
