Anthropology of Religion
Winter 2017 - This class should be called Anthropology of Islam. As much as I found it interesting, his lectures are not clear at all and he scribbles incoherent things on the board. His expectations are sometimes unrealistic and he purposefully tricked half of our class when it came to a midterm makeup exam. Take this class at your own risk.
Summer 2016 - Dr. Milne is one of the finest lecturers at UCLA. Though he can be very rigorous, he is always there to help. He is very laid back and friendly. He even brought his dog, Keiko, to almost every class meeting. He is both an outstanding teacher and a great academic. It's rare to find these kinds of professors at UCLA. Take him if you are wondering what class to take for summer session C.
She is a very engaging professor, which was a definite plus for an 8:30 am class. I took this class during summer school which made it more rushed that it should have been, but she describes everything very well. If you do the readings, although extensive, and pay attention in lecture, the class is really easy. The grade is divided up between two papers, an in-class project, a midterm and a final. It sort of feels like she makes her tests so easy that she probably laughs at the people who do poorly. A great professor and a great class.
The first half of the course was much more interesting than the second half. The midterm and finally were very predicatable and easy to study for. Just take good notes in class and study beforehand. She gave us a review sheet before hand and that helped a lot. She is a good lecturer and is easy to understand.
