Professor Burnett was a pretty good lecturer and an overall cool guy. He made lectures enjoyable and it didn't hurt that the course material was pretty interesting. The course reader, although long, contained articles that I actually wanted to read. Burnett encouraged us to look at why the world works the way it does through a completely different eye than we are used to. Regan Maas was a good TA...she made discussion enjoyable, knew her stuff, and actually cared about her students. The midterm and final were very straight forward, especially if you go to the review sessions. I would definitely recommend him.

Prof Cosgrove is one of the best professors i have had at UCLA. He is definetly the most approachable professor ive had, and will go out of his way to talk to students and make sure they understand the topics. He is extremely passionate about the subject and it shows in his lectures. Cosgrove taught the topics so that we cuold apply it to our everyday lives, and it helps you to think about the world in a different way.

I think that Curry does a good job because the material he teaches seems to be difficult to teach in the first place. However if you pay attention you'll understand what he is talking about. Yeah, the lectures go slow but you still learn to see the world in a different perspective. To do well you have to write well.

This guy is so boring. All he did was post up slides during lecture and dim the lights. He was a nice guy, but his lectures were incredibly difficult to stay awake for. His exams where straightforward. And if you do take this class, hope that you have a good TA, cause that's what seems to make the bigger difference.

The material in the class is fairly interesting, although if you're a south campus major taking this as a GE, the lack of concreteness will leave you very frustrated due to much of the pseudo-abstract BS that shows up a good majority of the time.

However luckily, tests are not designed on YOUR understanding of the material but the author's arguments present in your course reader. You need to know definitions and such of topics present on the study guide she gives you before both tests, as well as what each MAJOR article/film discussed. Essays are very much comparing and applying the author's arguments to certain situations.

Discussions are an awful, mandatory 2 hours, and depending on your TA, even the TA can get very bored as well. However, it is always a good time to discuss concepts and get an understanding for HOW the professor wants you to understand certain concepts.

Overall the class is very annoying due to the material taught and the amount of readings but easy once you know what they expect for tests. I would recommend going to a testbank and looking at a couple exams and see what each person missed etc. The final is very much the midterm but just double in length.

Most Helpful Review

I've had professor Herrera a few times before and honestly, he is THE best professor I've ever had at UCLA. He's funny, kind, and truly cares about his students. His lectures are engaging, educational, and very helpful when studying for midterms, finals, or writing papers. I cannot stress this enough, but he has been so incredibly kind and compassionate during these troubling times (covid/online learning) which has made learning and getting through the quarter easier. Don't get me wrong, his class still requires you to put in 100% of your effort to do well and get an A, but Bottom line, take him if you can, he's amazing.
