Quarter Taken: Spring 2019 Submitted June 22, 2019 Grade Received: A

This class was easy, straightforward, and had a light workload. The lectures were dry, but Professor Park posts the lecture slides on CCLE before the midterm and final so we can use them while studying for the exam. Going to class wasn't very helpful, and I only went because Park takes attendance (which counts in your grade). She assigns very long readings, and I didn't bother doing them. In addition to participation, your grade is also based on a midterm and final, which are both short essay style. She gives the study guide a week before the exams and the exam is based on the readings. I would only do the readings mentioned on the study guide and take notes on them for the short essays. This strategy worked well for me. The midterm is in class but the final exam is take home.

I thought she was a very good professor! Probably one of the best I've had at UCLA. She actually makes me want to pursue Social Anthropology for grad school!
I don't know why people are saying her lectures are disorganised because that is the complete opposite from my experience. It is in fact super organised and she even pauses briefly to allow people to finish copying down her slides before she starts talking. Genius!
She gave out the questions for the exams ahead of time so we could prepare. She even briefed us days before so we would know exactly what she wanted to see in our essays.
Also, I don't know why someone claimed her grading is hard because she gave me a 100% on my midterm, which she also gave to a handful of people in my class. It might just be my first 100% on a blue book ever!
The grading was 40/60 midterm/final. The midterm was an in-class bluebook and the final was a take home. Pretty straight forward essay questions, which I liked. Not at all designed to confuse you. She also bumped grades up with extra credit for attendance, which everyone else liked.
Her research on Race is pretty cool. She even created a linear model the outlined race relations! If you need some solid background in Social Anthropology, I think this class is essential.
Yes, her accent is thick, but still very understandable. And I'm deaf on one ear. Also, come on people, you're Anthropologists; don't mock people with accents. SMH!!

Graded fairly hard on exams. Class average was low and was not curved unless we all did bad on final. Lectures were long and went over the readings. Had to do readings to do well though becasue she asked super detailed exam questions.
