Scientific Analysis and Communication I
Spring 2019 - Bensinger is a caring and super funny. In fact, we got him to let us have a potluck at the end of 180B. Try to convince him to give you science lessons, you won't regret it. He's a genius and straight to it, no bullshit. Regarding the actual class, for 180A, the class is just one presentation and random assignments/readings about scientific writing and ethics. The rest of the time, you watch other Path 2 people present. 180B is a more in-depth data driven presentation and a poster session. Again, the 9 weeks where you don't present are where you watch other people. Easy class where you learn a lot.
Winter 2015 - MIMG 180A was, by far, my favorite class at UCLA. I would highly recommend waiting to take path II with Dr. Xing. He is the best! He is a really nice guy that is really interested in student success. Although it's only a 2 unit upper division seminar only offered to MIMG majors in path 2, its fantastic and one of the most meaningful class I've taken at UCLA! The class meets once a week for two hours and you get to hear your peers present about their research. It's very relaxed but you learn a lot. In fact, since its capped at 16 students, you really get to know everyone in the class and the professor fairly well.
