Professor Marcus Hunter is great! Special Topics 180A is Urban America and this is one of my favorite classes that I've taken at UCLA.

Professor Hunter is extremely engaging. His lectures are interesting, insightful, and fun. He encourages participation during lectures and sets up group discussions during every lecture where we get to discuss the current topics we are learning about with one another. I really enjoyed this class because it was very interesting and it gave me a better understanding as to why Urban American is the way it is today. Professor Hunter really breaks down and explains the different systemic forces that create the society we live in now and how they affect America today.

This is a must take class if it is offered! Professor Hunter is probably one of my favorite professors. He lectures with great clarity and passion. He plays jazz, motown, and hip hop music and brings it back to course topics. I really like how he relates the things we learn in class to things that are happening in America today.

No tests. Just two papers, and five discussion summaries! Very do-able! :)

This professor, overall is funny, passionate, and really into what he's teaching but because he's these things it means he's a fast talker and will often go through slides really fast. Most of the information on the slides are important dates and events but what he is saying is a lot more important.
He does not give sit-down tests, rather he gives take-home essays as the midterm and final, BUT BEWARE.
The main things for these tests is that you should definitely READ ALL THE READINGS to know which to choose for your arguments.
The essay prompts are really broad and require you to use two or more of the readings referred to in class, beyond that its all you.
For the grading of the tests the TAs are told to take away more points for grammar than for content.

Professor Hunter is so amazing. He is so passionate about his teachings. What I loved most about his class is that he incorporated a lot of art and music which was super fun and engaging. I would totally recommend this class to anyone. Easy GE and a great time.

If interested I'm selling his book " Black Citymakers:How The Philadelphia Negro Changed Urban America" for $10. Great book. Helped A LOT during midterm and final exam. My email is sandyest08@ucla.edu.

This is definitely an easy GE, that also covers the diversity requirement. I would strongly recommend it, the midterm and final are both essays.

If any of you are interested in purchasing his required book, email me at cr.crystalramirez098@gmail.com.

Took this Urban America class over Winter Quarter. Professor Hunter is amazing! He uses clips and songs to help us understanding the concepts we're learning and the reading more clearly. There is a take-home midterm and a take-home final, both essays based on the themes in the readings and our discussions in class based on those themes. Pay attention in class, especially his explanation of the quotes that are in the readings and you'll do well on the essays.
