Writing for ANTHRO 169, Ecology of Crime. Prof Brantingham is a funny and engaging lecturer. Your grade is determined by 2 out of 3 assignments, 50% each: midterm (mandatory), essay (optional), and final (optional). The midterm and final were both multiple choice, a breeze if you study go over his slides and bruincasted lectures. Overall, the content is very interesting too.

Really enjoyed this course! Attendance is not mandatory and the professor BruinCasts the class. Your grade is based on a midterm, final, and optional paper. If you do the paper and are happy with your grade, then you don't have to take the final. I decided to do the midterm and final. The exams were straightforward and easy as long as you paid attention during lecture or listened to his BruinCasts. I started studying 3-4 days before the midterm and final and listened to the class recordings and read the lecture slides. Make sure you understand the big picture of the lecture and the examples he discusses and you should do well on the exams!

So I took a class with the same time conflict/final time as this class. I went to this class once (just the day of the midterm exam) and ended up getting an A- in the class. I received a 42/45 on the midterm, studying only 3-4 days before the final. I watched all of the lectures on BruinCast and used the slides to follow his talking. All of my friends who read the textbook didn't do as well. Trust me and just use BruinCast and his slides to study. I then did the research paper and I got an 88% on it. Since I couldn't take the final, which I'm sure I would've got an A in, I ended up getting an A- in the class, as it was the average of the midterm and research paper for me.

The class is graded on 2 out of these 3 things:
1. Midterm
2. Research Paper
3. Final

The 2 highest grades are taken for your final grade and each will be worth 50%.

Amazing professor! He makes himself very available and is clear in his expectations. I honestly wish the class was a whole semester because there is so much material I would have loved to go over in more detail. I imagine his other classes are just as engaging. Regardless of whether you are an Anthro major/minor, or are just looking for a course to fulfill an elective, take Brantingham,

This is for Brantingham's Ecology of Crime course. He does an amazing job as a lecturer and professor, super helpful in office hours and excited to teach.

Class has 2 required assignments (50% midterm and 50% final). He has an optional paper too. If you do the paper, and are happy between that and your midterm grade, you don't to take the final. In my case, I wrote the paper to exclude my midterm grade. I realistically got an 89% and still bumped to an A-!

Professor Brantingham has been my favorite professor at UCLA! I wish he taught more classes than 157 - Ecology of Crime. If you keep up with the lectures, either in class or online, you'll do fine in the class. There is a midterm and final, and an optional paper that you can do in place of the final. Brantingham sets his students up for success and encourages them to come to office hours.

10/10 would recommend Professor Brantingham. He is the best professor I have had at UCLA, thus far. His lectures are meaningful and everything is very straight forward. The material is interesting and he relates it to our lives which makes understanding the course concepts so much easier. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS CLASS FOR ANY MAJOR!!! His tests were easy as long as you actually paid attention in class and cared to understand his main points.
