Dr. Fessler’s ANTHRO 19 class on animal cognition was pretty cool. We read a book called "Animals in Translation," which revolves around someone’s interpretation on how animals think. The book was interesting but largely unscientific--Dr. Fessler picked up for that in his presentations each week.

He is a brilliant man with a lot to say about biological anthropology. He also has a sense of humor, and he does’t mind going on tangents on topics he finds interesting. Very cool professor and interesting class! Still find myself thinking about the things we learnt.

Very boring seminar. I would avoid taking any future classes with this professor. Was a lot of work for a 2 unit class.

This was a great class. Professor Garro is an incredibly knowledgeable professor having done work in Canada. She is oftentimes funny. Every week consisted of reading articles on Paul Farmer's journey/ Partners in Health and intersection of anthropology and biomedicine. Discussion is very interesting. I learned in this class that healthcare is a right

I took Long-term Animal Behavior in my freshman fall quarter. The class is NOT as fun as it sounds. It mainly focused on monkeys and some scientific methods scientists use when observing animals. Each student was required to read a book and share with the class. Dr. Perry is undoubtedly an amazing researcher, but not a really interesting lecturer. Plus, you have to attend every lecture to pass the class. Would recommend to anthropology majors and those who are interested in monkeys.

It was a pretty laid back fiat lux since your grade is just based on class attendance. Some of the readings were interesting while others were a bore. Professor Smith is nice although she's not the best discussion facilitator.
