Passionate about the subject. Do the reading and listen to lecture and you'll do fine. 3 small quizzes and 3 papers, fairly easy.

Gower is very passionate about the subject and a bit quirky. She grades pretty hard on quizzes and tests and will nit-pick very little things. It's important to be very specific in everything you write. There's three small quizzes, three 2-page papers, and one 6-8 page final paper.

She is so passionate about the subject and such a pleasure to learn from. However, I have never been graded so hard in my life. It's a shame too because I love her as a person and a teacher. She will keep you interested and engaged, and I always loved showing up just to learn from her. But, I'm …more afraid this class is about to tank my GPA. Be careful. less

Super quirky, passionate, and seems to genuinely care about your well-being. Comes through especially if you go talk/ask her questions during office hours (make good use of them!) Only possible downside is that she is very very nitpicky with your words and demands both active engagement and …more thoughtfulness in your work in/outside of class. less

Prof Gower is not the professor to take if you hate in-class participation. She will call on you and invite you to talk, but not in a rude way. She cares about her students, but she is very specific about what she wants. Don't take this class if you don't like writing or reading. The readings are …more very manageable as is her schedule of due dates. less

Overall, you can pass if you follow her directions exactly and read, but she requires you to print all readings out (which adds up) and takes attendance. Can be rude and will dismiss your comment if she believes it is wrong or incorrect. Also is very unproductive at getting through what she says …more she wants to get through in class. less

Prof. Gower is the best core professor I've had in my 4 years at LMU. She cares about each student, challenges them to reexamine their perspectives, and guides them to become their best selves academically and spiritually. There are a lot of books/excerpts to print and read but they were enjoyable. …more Just show up and show that you care. TAKE HER!!! less

Overall, Gower provides a good overview in this course of the 3 Abrahamic religions, however is a supremely tough grader on papers. She gives an impossible assignment and grades you down for doing it in the allotted space-2 pages. Very enthusiastic on the subject matter, just make sure whatever you …more say is precise, concise, and specific. less

highly recommend not taking her. She can be very rude and aggressive at times especially if you don't get the subject material. As some one who had very little experience in the subject matter prior to taking the class, I refrained from speaking in class as she only listens to answers that she …more agrees with. Do not take her if you have a choice. less
