This course has a HUGE focus on Islam and is not a general anthropology of religion class. He is a very disorganised lecturer and the exams are tough, he offered a makeup for the midterm but was very misleading about its format and content. He also said there would be two short answers in the final - turns out this was actually 2 22 mark essays worth half your grade. The final was full of mistakes. He takes a long time to post slides online and they often miss out key information and terms. Interesting content and readings but would not recommend due to the poor organisation and standard of the exams.

Dr. Milne is one of the finest lecturers at UCLA. Though he can be very rigorous, he is always there to help. He is very laid back and friendly. He even brought his dog, Keiko, to almost every class meeting. He is both an outstanding teacher and a great academic. It's rare to find these kinds of professors at UCLA. Take him if you are wondering what class to take for summer session C.

She is a very engaging professor, which was a definite plus for an 8:30 am class. I took this class during summer school which made it more rushed that it should have been, but she describes everything very well. If you do the readings, although extensive, and pay attention in lecture, the class is really easy. The grade is divided up between two papers, an in-class project, a midterm and a final. It sort of feels like she makes her tests so easy that she probably laughs at the people who do poorly. A great professor and a great class.

The first half of the course was much more interesting than the second half. The midterm and finally were very predicatable and easy to study for. Just take good notes in class and study beforehand. She gave us a review sheet before hand and that helped a lot. She is a good lecturer and is easy to understand.
