Comment:
She treats students as if they are beneath her and does not listen to them or value them as people let alone their opinions. She just reads out of the book (which is poorly written and repeats 5 concepts throughout the entire book). To do well on the test you basically need to memorize the entire book and she doesn't clarify anything. Really bad.

Great professor overall. She is very passionate and quite the engaging professor. Her tests are super easy as long as you read the text book. Her lectures are very entertaining and thought provoking. Don't goof off in her class she will not put up with it and call you out.

Comment:
Dr. Burns is one of the best professors at UNBSJ. She is knowledgeable, helpful and funny. Those who don't do well in her class are those who don't do the work. She can be intimidating at first, even a little scary, but don't be afraid to speak up or chat with her after class. She's genuine!

Awesome professor, have had her for 3 classes (all upper level) and enjoy her and her classes immensely. She has a great sense of humour and is very personable. The material is in depth but if you pay attention and have a general liking for sociology you should do great.

Hmm. Interesting Character, helps you develop better writting skills, Theoretical foundations, uses classic works from Weber, marx, freud etc. Very important class, helps you grasp key concepts in soci. very fair marker, expects well written assignments, and encourages you to produce them. Spaces out occassionaly.. but its all very amusing.

took a variety of courses from her, i think shes awesome, if you pay attention, its sooo easy to get an A in her course, shes a bit quirky and can sure have an attitude if youre dickin around, but its hilarious! She definitely knows her stuff and is probably the smartest prof that I know of.

I have taken other soc courses, and thought they were bad... this one just tops the charts. She is VERY off topic and does not communicate well for being a prof. Unless you need to take the course, I would suggest finding another prof to take it from.

She's all over the place and barely knows her material. It's Mexican society and she can't pronounce any of the names but expects us to be able to spell them perfectly. Basically you have to memorize word for word the review sheets she gives you which are all over the place too!

She gets off topic very easily, and starts ranting on material and its hard to clarify what she will test you on or not. she tests on ridiculous infomation, thats has nothing to do with the content of the text book, you have to pretty much memorize the entire text book.
