Professor Bianchi is very intelligent but still makes an effort to be fun & relatable. I took Social Demography to satisfy one of the core requirements for Soc and was very glad I did. The topics were surprisingly very interesting--such as age pyramids in different countries, infant mortality/death rates, race/gender, etc. The course involved doing some data analysis on the U.S. Census website for short papers & a longer final paper, but it was easy to learn. I appreciated having this experience because I feel that data analysis is a transferable skill that looks good when applying to a variety of jobs. Professor Bianchi was very helpful in office hours and helped me do very well on my final paper. She claims to be a harsh grader but I think she just wants to challenge us because I did very well and found the course to be easy & interesting.

This was probably the easiest, most straightforward class I've taken at UCLA. This is definitely Bianchi's field of interest and it was evident from her lectures that she's very passionate & knowledgeable about gender issues in the workplace. There were a few very simple short papers, a midterm, & a final which I found to be a breeze. Lectures were interesting & interactive and Bianchi was very interested in hearing about students' experiences and opinions--definitely accepting of all views. Even though I felt like I already learned learned a lot about these issues, I walked away feeling that I had a very comprehensive understanding of why there is an earnings gap between men & women (one of the major themes of the course which we studied through a variety of topics).
