I took this course remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. My experience is different than what the class would look like in person, but overall I enjoyed the class. In terms of grades, this class is an easy A and a great class to take to fulfill GE requirements. This class is different than most other classes in the way that you are required to volunteer with a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles. However, it is very easy to get started with an organization, especially remotely, because there are so many different options that are provided by professor Staub and all work can be done at home. Though about 24 hours of service are required for full credit in the course, because of the pandemic, this requirement has been relaxed a little, so there really is no need to worry about this portion too much. The other main assignments are one research paper around week 6-7 and then the final for which you can choose from several different options such as a paper, writing a letter, making a video, etc. Going to discussion is also mandatory since it accounts for your participation grade, but oftentimes discussion is so engaging and almost like just having a conversation with your peers and TA that it does not even feel like you're in class. Though there is a time listed for lectures in this class, Professor Staub posts all the lectures asynchronously and we never met live for anything except on the first day and in our weekly discussion sections. The lectures and readings for the week are meant to be completed before you attend discussion, but most weeks I would not watch lectures or read and I was able to fully participate in discussion and do well on the assignments. Overall, this is a great class for someone looking for GE credit and wanting an easy A with minimum effort.
