This is one of my very favorite classes at UCLA. Hollan is excellent. You read the coolest books and actually write fun papers where you get to be an ethnographer and observe others and then write about what you saw. The papers were the easiest papers I have ever written, very straight-forward. The subject matter of the course is really good. Prof. Hollan is super nice and does an excellent job of preparing you for the exam. Just go to lecture and read and you will ace the class! If you want to bring up your GPA and are interested in learning about different cultures take this class with Hollan.

I really enjoyed this class! There were three books we had to read, the first I found a little harder to understand than the later two. After each book we wrote a paper that tied the book to smaller articles that were assigned. The grade breakdown was as follows:

Three short essay papers: 70%
Two short-in section exams: 20%
Discussion Participation: 10%

In addition to the papers we had "short in-section exams." In reality these were just defining terms from lecture and the articles, super easy!! The lectures were initially not recorded, but he decided to record them a few weeks in. Even though the lectures just consisted of him talking with no powerpoint I found them easy to follow and engaging! Overall, the class did have a good amount of reading, but I thought it was a super interesting and easy class!! Definitely take!!

I found his teaching style to be very understanding. He is clearly interested in his subject and gives in depth answers to most questions. Very open to questions and gives good answers. The essay prompts were fairly easy and I ended with a B, I think my TA had more to do with that.
