Dr. Susan Ferguson is almost a pioneer at Mountain View College, joining the English faculty in 1971, the second year of the institution. A scholar in Shakespearean studies, Dr. Ferguson brings the classics of British and world literature to life in ways that leave her students following her from class to class, one semester after another.
Professor Ferguson holds a B.A. in English and Philosophy from the University of Dallas and a M. A. and Ph.D. in English from the University of North Texas.
Dr. Ferguson combines her work in at Mountain View College with a second "career" in public service. Moved by the plight of the poor and engaged for years in women's advocacy work, she entered the Texas Wesleyan School of Law in Fort Worth and finished her Doctorate in Jurisprudence in June, 1994. She has served as an editor for articles published in the Law Review, and American Jurisprudence, and served as an intern for two years with Justice Linda Thomas.
Deeply involved in the life of her community, Dr. Ferguson provides services to The Family Place and Shor Provider, and was runner up for the distinguished "Maat Justice Award" by the Women's Division of the State Bar of Texas for her contribution of more than 200 hours of pro bono legal work in the first six months of her law practice.
