**This review is for Communications 184, not Communications 113. Prof Huppins listing on bruin walk does not show Communications 184 even though he taught it this summer.**

A class named Abortion, Gun Control, and Death Penalty: Arguing Contemporary Social Issues sounds like it would be fun, right? Especially in todays political world.

The problem is that this class title is misleading. We spent extremely little time on gun control or death penalty. A little on abortion, but the rest was just Huppin trying to squeeze his first amendment knowledge and other research interests into a class where they really didn't belong. Why did we have to endure a powerpoint on Compelled Speech? The Suicide Texting Case? Affirmative Action? Tbf, affirmative action i guess is a contemporary issue (really, though, it was an issue of 10 years ago). But he chose and focused on topics NOT in the description at the expense of those in the description.

This class is great if you're a lightweight. Everyone gets an A! But the substance is a major disappointment. Not the class that was advertised. It seemed as if Huppin chose to teach this class at the last minute even though he wasn't qualified - at least thats what i could infer from the several messages I got from random people in the department before the course began. The class felt like it was being made up on -the-fly.

Verdict: My GPA thanks me. But my pocketbook and appetite for learning do not. Sort of a waste for a summer. Wish i followed my friends advice and took a diff class instead
