Winter 2022 - I took this class for a Historical Analysis GE, and I would not recommend it for that purpose if you're looking for minimal effort. It was a great class if you're a History major, and I loved learning history that was not included in our curriculums in depth growing up. However, the discussion sections were very tedious and required deep knowledge of extensive historical texts, as well as constant participation, so it is not an easy way to knock out the GE.
Spring 2019 - AMAZING class. The class was split into a 3 hour lecture, which usually consisted of a short lecture from the professor and then a film screening, and a 1 hour discussion. Most of the films were really interesting and related well with the readings. There were 2 essays: a short film review (5-6 pages, can be considered the "midterm") and a long film review (8-10 pages, the "final"). There was a lot of reading sometimes, but you don't really need to do all of it unless you plan on doing one of your film reviews about that week's film. Discussion was mandatory and worth 30% of our grade, but it was easy, and it was very engaging. The rest of your grade was those two essays (worth 60% total) and easy in-class quizzes (worth 10%). The topics covered in this class were eye-opening and grading was very easy, overall I'd 100% recommend this class if you're looking for a worthwhile GE that's also an easy A.
Spring 2022 - His lectures aren't organized since he tends to ramble from one topic to the next. However, his assignments were pretty easy from a fictional interview to the take home final, they were pretty straightforward. I barely did any of teh readings and still managed to get a good grade. If you dont mind being lost and rushed in lecture and doing the class based on your own structure take this class.
