Professor Brantingham is a gem. Please take him. I trust you his class is not difficult. I toke him online for spring 2021, and his class structure is lectures (which are 3 lectures a week, they're very fun and engaging he adds movie clips or other videos), followed by weekly readings and bi-weekly quizzes. (Quizzes are based on lecture and readings but its open note).There is an optional final and research paper but if you do good in all your 4 quizzes you don't have to take the optional final exam or research paper. He also does weekly raffles to win gift cards if you submit him an analysis of the weeks lecture and how it realtes to songs he uploads. Please take him this class is an easy elective or major class and you will sincerely enjoy your time with him. 10/10

***THIS REVIEW IS FOR ANTHRO 9***
For all that is good in this world, do not take this class with this professor. It was by far the worst class I have taken during my time at UCLA. This class was the definition of a joke. This was supposed to be an intro to cultural and social anthropology, but we spent the better half of the quarter focused on the Trobriand Islands and their culture...that is too specific for an introduction course. It got to the point of being irrelevant, and the work was highly uninteresting. The professor would often be teaching for a while and then suddenly say that he is not sure whether he has the information right or not. He even had the gall to say that he arrived unprepared for lecture and then proceeded to read his lecture to us from a write up he brought. After a couple lectures, people started to just show up for the in-class quizzes and then leave right after. The in-class quizzes were also impossibly specific at times, even for those who did the readings. He would focus on irrelevant details instead of concepts that seemed important. The TAs would agree with us, but there's not much they can do in that regard. Thankfully, there were no in-class midterms or finals, but rather 2 take home midterm exams that were 6-8 pages, as well as a take home final that was also a 6-8 page paper. Many people complained about the prompt for the final essay because it seemed redundant, and he of course would not be willing to change or make it clearer. Although he is an old man and you tend to want to feel sorry for him, the waste of time and money doesn't excuse his lack of professionalism and presentation. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU.
