DISCLAIMER: I took this class when it was offered as an online course.
This class was super interesting but it was a lot more work than I expected. We were required to do a weekly discussion post, attend our discussion sections, a weekly quiz on our readings and lectures, and a weekly lab assignment. We also had a final paper due week 9. The first few weeks of this class were very technical as we were learning about climate, the carbon cycle, and other stuff. Later in the course, the material was a lot easier as we discussed population growth, environmental injustice, and other interesting topics. This class does require a lot of independent work but it is not too bad as long as you keep a consistent schedule. Participation is also really important in your discussion sections! Overall, I really enjoyed the class and would probably take it again. Just make sure to stay on top of your work and you will do fine.

This guy is one of the better professors I've had at UCLA. His jokes are actually funny and he keeps you interested during lecture. Probably one of the only classes where I watched all of the lectures. If you want an interesting class that makes you more familiar with the world without having to memorize basic and useless information, take this one.

Professor Le is a very clear instructor. She made me interested in environmental science after not having a great experience in high school. We also had a weekly lab that was very interactive and hands-on. The exams were multiple choice and were on concepts she discussed. We also had a group project that required a presentation in discussion section and a group paper. She also offered extra credit opportunities which is helpful if you're close to the next grade.

I completely agree with the other review but I didn't think the class warranted 2.0! I personally found it super interesting but yes the workload was a bit way too much and requirements were pretty inconsistent.
