Honors class LS 89 I took this simultaneously with LS3. As my first honors class, I have to say I’m impressed with it. We had to go to at least ten seminars and write one paragraph summaries. These turned into a page for me often because I was so interested in the seminar topic that I couldn’t stop talking about it. You have to present a summary of a seminar you went to at least once all quarter to the class- usually about 30 people since you only have to go like 5 times out of 10 weeks. Some people are stage shy but Schein will help you work it out and he’s cute and helpful about it. The class is supportive too, no reason to be shy! The seminars are where researchers of UCLA and its extensions present their cutting edge research. Usually these are hella detailed like down to what kind of shape a protein needs on its surface to be targeted to inhibit some kind of cellular functions, and what kind of genetic sequence will make the shape. Some seminars are confusing because theyre so detailed and the presenters often use acronyms and nicknames, which confuses beginners. Other seminars talk about disease and environmental effects- those are easy to follow. Most seminars are only an hour …and they offer snacks!!! No reason NOT to take LS89- it’s super easy, there’s food, the seminars are fun and interesting, they expand on concepts from LS3 so it’s cool, you get to know Schein better so he’s not just another professor, and it’s honors!! Take it if you can, highly recommend!
