Comment:
She is one of the worst professors I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. She gave us a syllabus that was multiple semesters old but never clarified the correct dates for assignments when she was asked, gave multiple different due dates for the same assignments, and was an overall terrible teacher. I would give her a -5/5 if I could.

like many students have mentioned, she's a really tough grader, super unorganized and was never clear about anything not homework or papers. for a social psychology professor she is very inconsiderate always calling people out and sometimes even rude about it. i am absolutely shocked with my grade because i never knew where i stood.

She grades easy throughout the whole semester but when it comes to the final paper I have never met a tougher grader. She gives awful feedback and doesn't try to help her students improve. Her criteria is very unclear and if the paper is not exactly how she wants it she will give you a 0. She seems sweet but does not care about her students.

She is a tough grader. Very confusing and unclear on how she wants papers written. Forces participation and will call you out. She's very unhelpful. Sweet at first until you do poorly on a paper or miss a class, and will not do anything to help you or give you good feedback. Do not take her.

Listen to all the terrible reviews. She is so unorganized, wastes your time, grades the little assignments without reading them, but the final writing assignment is graded so harshly on things she never mentioned. Loves to cut people off, loves the sound of her own voice, does not care about students, disagree with her - good luck surviving

Comment:
Dr. Rafferty is one of my favorite profs I've had at Pace. Do the readings and participate in class discussions, and show curiosity/interest in the subject. It's definitely not an "easy A," but what I learned from her class has been SO valuable and helpful to me. 10/10 would recommend, especially if you're going to grad school!

Comment:
Dr. Rafferty has an inspiring background, but I am finding more and more at Pace that having an amazing background does not make you a great professor. This class is very triggering/covers graphic subjects and she seemed very insensitive to students who struggled with that. She was also a tough grader and forced participation/called you out.

She's a wonderful woman, she's very caring and she makes it known that she cares about the content and the students. If you show interest in the class she shows interest in you. The topics for The Girl Child are heavy, but she makes you want to conquer the world! One of the few classes I enjoy/don't mind. Weekly readings/2 page papers aren't hard!

Do: Read the very fun/short/easy to read textbook, go to every class if you can, and participate in the discussions because they are interesting and make class go by quicker. It is an easy A if you do that. Don't: Dont submit work late, dont miss so many classes. Only 3 quizes and she drops the lowest, a few essays but just include words from book.

Comment:
Rafferty is amazing and she has a great knowledge of the area that she teaches- you will literally never worry about whether or not she does. She's extremely understanding if you are having a personal problems with work, so just talk to her and be honest. Sometimes the articles she assigns can seem to have a bit of bias, but she herself is amazing

Comment:
Rafferty is enthusiastic and loves psychology but she is very confusing. Usually assigns articles to read and write reaction papers on, those are the only assignments apart from a take home midterm and final and a research paper. Pretty easy grader but extremely confusing and if you miss assignments she is not terribly understanding

Although very knowledgable this professor is very opinionated. If your opinion doesn't match hers, consider your grade dropped a letter. She doesn't listen when you talk. She likes to hear the sound of her own voice. Take ANYONE else

I usually try to show all my teachers respect, but this teacher in particular will not show YOU any respect in return. She's very sure of her own answers and if you're even remotely wrong, she'll make sure you hear about it. Everyone makes mistakes, but if you have Rafferty, try to make very little or otherwise face her wrath. Made my class hell.

Comment:
all reviews correct - two very different sides to personality. was one of the favorites until a family medical emergency changed everything - became a "go get counseling" situation, which surprised me, since psychologists don't generally go out of their way to make ppl feel inadequate, esp honors students! did make ppl in class feel stupid too.
