Dr. Small is amazing. Everyone who needs the diversity requirement should take this class. Super engaging lectures, lots of opportunities for participation, and tons of guest lecturers, which are a) super interesting but b) not necessary at all. There's one Dr. Small lecture and one guest lecture per week, so its a light load. Discussion attendance is mandatory, but that's all you need to do. The midterm and final aren't too hard, especially if you go to the lectures that Dr. Small runs. She's also super sweet and funny, and approachable if you're confused about anything. Highly recommend!!!
i loved professor small!! her classes are extremely engaging and you don't have to try so hard to get a good grade. her midterm was hard for me and a few people that i knew, but this class was extremely doable and you can get at least an A- without trying so hard. i recommend you enrolling into her classes no matter what your major is. she's amazing! : )
Dr. Small is an excellent professor. She is funny and encourages participation during lectures which really allows us to grasp the content. She is also very enthusiastic and passionate about her subject. I feel that is a class that everyone should take because it forces you to think about how everything depends on our environment. She is a great professor but like many other courses, your grade is basically completely dependent on your TA and there is no rubric provided for assignments (only basic instructions). If you fail to understand a concept or instructions, it's important to ask your TA for help before it affects your performance on your midterm or final since they determine how things are graded. It's crucial you communicate with your TAs to know what is expected of you since there's no rubrics. (don't quote me as this might change in the future) Overall, this was a great class and I would absolutely take it again. The workload consists of three reflections on class readings that can be completed during any three weeks of the quarter, a midterm, and a final exam, all of which make up 90% of the grade. The rest is based on discussion attendance and participation.
