Listen to the one star reviews. Not because you'll have a choice whether to take her or not if you're in the program. But mostly because at least you'll be prepared. Dr. Humud really just enforced to me the amazement I feel at how low the bar is for teaching about serious and important topics. I wish I had not taken her class.

I honestly think some of these reviews are overly dramatic. Sure, there were a lot of things Dr. Humud could have done better in teaching this class, but I certainly wouldn't go as far as to say she was one of the worst professors I've taken a class with. She's objectively a nice person and cares about what she teaches about, and is also accommodating with extensions. The class is also an easy A. All you have to do are some participation assignments, projects, and weekly responses. We didn't have a final which was nice. The class this semester definitely left a lot to be desired but don't let the one-star reviews scare you off. In my opinion it wasn't THAT bad.

nice human who wants the best for you. only note is that, she ranges from not assigning anything to 10 different tasks all at once. ie expectations can be a bit all over the place (same for HHUM106)

She is quite possibly one of the worst professors I have ever had the displeasure of taking a class with in my entire academic career. Dr. Humud repeatedly placated students' expressions of being unsatisfied with this course, and was unhealthily passive aggressive with her feedback on assignments. There was an incident in our class' lecture in which multiple students of color expressed that they had taken offense to some of the content and methods of presenting this content to the class about halfway through the semester, to which she made multiple in class statements about. However, instead of apologizing for it, she expressed "how fortunate" she was "to be able to teach a class with such intellectual individuals" or some bs like that. Only when a student in class raised her hand and directly asked Humud to say sorry did she finally apologize. At the beginning of next class she proceeded to have everyone do an activity in which she placed whiteboards around the room with different social aspects on them and asked everyone to stand by the one that they identified with the most. To no one's surprise, all of the students of color stand by the "race" board and everyone else stood by something else, and congratulations, she has now segregated our lecture. On top of this, among other incidents and concerns expressed by students, she cannot be bothered to respond to emails with any timely manner, and gave assignments that felt more like grey spaces in my learning as opposed to anything substantial. It sucks for anyone in the Honors Humanities program because she is the only teacher for the class. If I were to give any advice, it would be to find out which TAs are leading which sections and try to get into the ones that Humud isn't teaching, since the grading is much quicker and much more fair.

This class was an absolute train wreck. Dr. Humud's ability to make her students lose all respect for her and her class is astonishing. It actually felt like she had to be antagonizing us on purpose, because I cannot imagine a world wherein the level to which she made everyone hate her was merely the result of negligence. She was consistently out of touch with the students, and her promises regarding changes to the direction of the course were unmet. Grading is also inconsistent between her and the TAs, so if you have her as your section instructor expect to have your projects graded much more harshly than your peers'.

Do NOT take any class with Dr. Humud. Throughout the semester she said multiple racially insensitive comments in a class that teaches about race. She drops random assignments on students with no warning, and the assignments are usually worth a significant amount of points that will drastically lower your grade for not completing. Her grading is completely different from her TAs, so some students will have very good project grades while students with her as their section leader are struggling to pass.

She's a really nice person in theory, but this class is absolutely terrible and the way she goes about teaching it is the worst. If you want to be in honors humanities, it's not worth it PURELY because of this class.

She takes a weird approach to teaching this class. This class is easy and basically a guaranteed A, but she is very insensitive when talking about serious and controversial topics. She is kinda boring and she is so big on participation which is fine but also sometimes annoying. The projects that she gives us are sometimes unnecessarily long and tedious. She also assigns them at the worst times (for example she gave us this project on the last day on classes which I felt was super unfair). If you're taking this course, you're definitely going to have her but just be prepared for all this.

Very kind and sweet. She always is very understanding and gives extensions when needed. She is also very easy to listen to in class plus she is very big on participation which is pretty cool. Definitely take.

Dr. Humud is incredibly nice and understanding, and was always very willing to help. She listened to our concerns and adjusted things based on our feedback. There was never too much work, even with the three main projects you have to do. The weekly discussions weren't great; we'd meet with small groups and discuss a bunch of random questions (which she usually didn't post until late the night before) and turn in the recording of the meeting. We stopped doing those partway through the semester, though.

Dr. Humud is very nice and is always willing to chat about class projects or a student's plan for their future. She is great at bouncing ideas around and suggesting helpful things for students who are indecisive. The class load is never too much.

Dr. Humud is great, I've had her for a couple of my classes now. She's always open for office hrs to discuss class material or honestly anything else, and you can tell she has a passion for teaching the humanities. She's also really understanding, so make sure to communicate any concerns or questions you may have and it'll be easy to work out with her.

So so nice! I think she is such a nice and good professor. She genuinely wants you to learn about the humanities and makes it interesting while doing so. You can always tell how passionate she is about what she teaches. She also leaves almost all of your projects open-ended and even lets you write your own section of the rubric to include your own expectations so that you can be creative with the assignment. I absolutely loved her and would take any of her classes again.
