EASY A. This class is designed for your success. It is so simple to do well.
Grade Distribution: A+: 33
A: 8
A-: 5
B+: 7
B: 4
B-: 1
The actual work for this class is a bit tedious and annoying, but work is only required for 7 weeks. You can choose which prompts you want to write or skip a report as long as you write 7. If you do more than 7, your highest graded reports are the ones selected for your grade. Even if you do not do well on reports, you can still get an A. The professor offers so many bonus opportunities and many of them are for completion. ADDITIONALLY, the other half of the class is on a gaming platform. Some games give you points solely for completion, while others give points based on performance. The secret to success is play every game. Your performance will determine what percentile of the class you are in and that determines the grade boost at the end of the quarter. Everyone wins in the end! Take this class because the professor is the kindest professor I have had and the TAs are great too!

Not a "class" by any stretch of the imagination. No lectures, no way to contact Was/course readers, no way to interact with other students, office hours conducted via email...

This isn't a course-- this is a list of busy work for you to complete. Her syllabus is ridiculous and convoluted. The workload is absurd. Dropped after week 1. Not worth it at all. The grades clearly work out (after you slave for a quarter), but calling this an "education" or a "class" is absolutely criminal and a disgrace to Ucla political science.

This class is an easy A only if you put in the work. I COMPLETED EVERY GAME in the Gaming Platform and this is required for an A. Had I not done this, I would have ended with an A-. For the weekly papers you will have to write throughout the quarter, please do them in a group of 3. This is what I did and it made life so much easier. My group would split up the work for each paper as evenly as we could each week so I never had to spend too much time writing my assigned portion. Also, DO ALL THE EXTRA CREDIT Professor Lohmann provides. These EC opportunities are not at all time consuming, yet she still gives you about a week to complete them. If you do all this, this class will be a breeze and an A is guaranteed.

Professor Lohmann is a very passionate professor who really cares about her subject material. She sometimes talks a little fast and goes on tangents, but she's able to relate everything back to what she's teaching. She's really knowledgeable about climate change and talking about shifting data trends.

She's also incredibly sweet and really into hearing from her students, so it's very easy to ask questions or discuss your opinions with her! The work is manageable, but you need to put effort into it. This is a professor who will help you if you ask, and wants you to succeed, so take advantage of it.

She is hands down one of the best professors I've taken at UCLA, highly recommend her as a professor.
