“I looked forward to coming to class every day because it made me think in new ways and challenged my existing ideas. I committed myself to writing the best papers I could because the material spoke to me in ways nothing else at Maryland did. I remember enjoying the discussions and how they left my brain on high alert for the rest of the day. It takes an extraordinary teacher to accomplish something like that.”
“Every single class I was challenged to think deeply AND differently. I feel as though every discussion and activity hoped that I’d do so.”
"This course is hands-down amazing. I learned so much and it got me so excited for the remaining credits I need to fulfill. The 2-hour lectures were the highlights of my semester. Dr. Kosko is extremely well-informed and brilliant in her teaching."
"Dr. Kosko is the best teacher at the University of Maryland. That is all."
"Dr. Kosko not only clearly knows her stuff, but she brings in an element of humanity to her teaching that really lends itself to the subject of international development. She really seems dedicated to teaching a course that makes sense, and is really flexible to the responsiveness of the class and feedback. Great course, would recommend it to anyone who plans on continuing to be a human being whose decisions influence the rest of the world."
"I have honestly never felt more engaged in a class than I have in this one."
"Very eye-opening. If the university wants to produce intelligent and world-aware students then classes like this should be mandatory."
