Quarter Taken: Winter 2016 Submitted July 12, 2017 Grade Received: A

Professor Von Blum is the best person I've met at UCLA and it was an honor to take a class with him. He has an extensive history in social justice work and is not afraid to tell you what he thinks and stand up people who are often left out of the conversation.

This class is especially great because you get to learn about social change through art - something the Communications Department doesn't offer very frequently. You don't need to memorize anything you learn about, but I promise it will stick with you because it is so important and he presents it in an incredibly engaging way.

Your grade is based on either curating an art exhibition or writing an extensive research paper on whatever area interests you. Either are great opportunities to take everything he teaches you and apply it in a way that will cultivate important skills for the future.
