Dr. Neubauer is my favorite professor at UCLA after taking this class. She is so knowledgeable and cares a lot about the subject and her students. The course was divided into two quizzes, a short paper and a research paper+debate. All the assignments are manageable as long as you come to lecture and complete the readings (which are usually quite interesting). She offers a lot of extra credit that can boost your grade up to two ranges (B+ to A). She also notes that if you participate in class and care about your grade, she might even boost it to three ranges! Take this class you won't be disappointed, as long you somewhat have an interest for archaeology.
Excellent class. Very easy A, very good lecturer. The first multiple choice was out of 27 but she said anyone who got 25 got 100%. The papers are easy the only difficulty is they are so short and you have to reference 3+ sources on 1 page double spaced. She says they are this short because she is the only grader. She would benefit from a TA as students cannot really make an argument in such a short paper.
There is a lot of reading, 2-4 papers a week ranging from 4 pages to 100 so just be wary. Each paper has a McQ question in the quiz and some are simple like ‘what is their main argument’ and others are far harder like ‘which group did the author study to investigate the trend’. You can skim them but it’s best to take notes. Only 1 class I’m the quarter requires participation.
The class has a very good atmosphere mainly because the lecturer is so nice. She is funny and clear her slides are excellent. I learnt a lot.
Professor Neubaeur was great! I honestly was hesitant when I enrolled in her class because she had no reviews and she is new to UCLA, but this class was amazing! Very very easy to get an A, there are also two short extra credit papers you can do to bump your grade but I didn't even need them. There are two quizzes and two papers, with one of the papers being 45% of your grade along with 5% of a debate participation based on that paper. She grades superrr leniently and is very fair. The quizzes were open note and based on the readings and powerpoint lectures she had. As long as you do all the assignments you won't get less than an A.
