Fall 2018 - Spotts is amazing! Her lectures are very clear. This is obviously a very general class that covers a lot of different concepts, but everything is super relevant and interesting. Tests are relatively easy and paper is also pretty simple. I would recommend recording lectures to go back and listen to everything she says because she does a really good job of summarizing the readings in lecture. Will totally take Spotts again if I have the chance! This women KNOWS.
Winter 2018 - Best class at UCLA by far. Dr. Potts is engaging and lovely to work with. I learned so much from this class that stuck with me during my entire time at UCLA. You will not regret it! Be aware that her quizzes are kind of hard but the final was super easy and she lets you know what she will test on beforehand. If you are looking for a class that teaches you a lot and opens your third eye, definitely check this out.
Fall 2018 - If you're a global studies major and you're taking the senior seminar take one with Professor Potts if possible. She really cares about her students, she made the class as easy as possible but didn't dumb down the material. She was pretty clear about things and approachable. For our class 10% of the grade was partcipation and the other 90% was weekly 1 page writing assignments on the readings which in my opinion is easier than a final paper and a group project like the other gs seminars had.
