Very boring seminar. I would avoid taking any future classes with this professor. Was a lot of work for a 2 unit class.

Probably the best teacher I’ve had in the entire time I’ve been at UCLA. He made me fall in love with anthropology. The work is extremely easy and there is no essay for COVID classes. He is extremely caring and understanding. If I could rank all the professors professor Fiske is number one.

This class is a joke. You can learn everything in the class by just reading Bernard's book that he requires. The second book is useless and do not even buy it, you do not need it for the weekly assignments, discussions sections, or the final. The lectures as very dull, quiet, and unnecessary. He did not go over anything that was needed in the assignments, book, or the final. Over time, fewer and fewer people showed up, and I started to attend the lecture every other class. One day, there were only 20 of us, out of 150.
There are weekly assignments, some require you to go out and do some fieldwork, which can be fun or intimidating. My TA was Eric and he was very helpful. Those fieldwork assignments are 50 percent of your grade, and the final is like a bigger version of the assignments, which is 25 percent of your grade. There are strict guidelines, and if you follow them, you will end up with a grade you'd like.
I would not recommend Fiske but I did learn a lot in this class.
