I took this class as a life science major trying to get an easy GE credit and it was pretty easy. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this class though, I feel like a lot of professors say they don't want you to focus on grades and just learn but Professor Nelson actually backs that up. He is very clear in lectures, and the exams are not made to try to trick you. I would highly recommend this class to anyone, because a lot of the information from this class changed how I view and navigate the world. Even though this class had nothing to do with my major it was still one of my favorite classes I took at UCLA.

A lot of evaluations here center on how "if you don't like African art then you won't like this class," but I feel that goes with saying for any class? Nelson cares very deeply that you are engaged and excited about the work, and I really appreciated his genuine love of the subject. Granted, I am an art history major focusing on African art, but I had other non-AH majors say the same thing. He is funny, he tries to make the material relevant to you, but he also makes you work for the 5 credits you are getting. I don't really understand the "If I can't skip all the lectures and reading for this GE then it's not worth taking" grumbling, but if that's what your overall educational goal is then... no, maybe don't take this course. But if you even mildly like art, non-western culture, race and gender, or even just want to take a class with a funny professor who is also incredibly helpful and makes himself available whenever needed, I'd definitely recommend Nelson.
