Topics in Neuroethics

A great professor, and a great class. I believe it is not graded harshly at all-- I got an A without putting an extraordinary amount of time/effort in. It was an engaging and interesting class. Professor recommends that you do as much of the assigned readings as possible to be able to participate in class discussions.

Workload:

A ~3 page double-spaced paper every week, graded on completion. A 20-30 page final paper.

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor McCaskill is a gem of a teacher. She is by far one of the top three teachers I have had in three and half years of college. She actually knows the material she is teaching and can therefore answer your questions...and when she is stumped she doesnt make something up but actually looks up the answer and gets back to you. Very rare for a Columbia Prof. She is more than willing to stay VERY late in order to meet with you and help you out. She hold amazing review sessions for BN. Very worth going to because if you do go she knows youre devoted and will give you hints as to what is on the test and what is not. She is the type of Professor who will sit with you for hours to help you with anything, whether it be school work or grad schools apps. She is even willing to help you out with work from other classes. She is just a great teacher...though much better in small setting classes. I highly recommend taking her for a seminar rather than a lecture becuase the lecture could get a little tedious. But in a small group setting she is amazing.

Workload:

Not bad. Drug Use and Abuse- midterm (both are difficult if you dont study) final, paper (REALLY easy). BN- two midterms and a final. You MUST study for these...its a lot of memorization.
