International Politics of Southeast Asia

Professor Murphy is probably the most helpful instructor I've had at Columbia. She was always available to assist with research for the final paper, which was a 20+ page research paper on the topic of your choice. It was great to see a Columbia professor that cared to much about her students. The class itself was interesting because Professor Murphy mixed lecture in with group discussion, which made for a balanced approach. Her notes were always clear and concise and helped with the midterm topics. Allowing freedom on the final paper and then assisting with it made it a great learning experience.
