Foundations and Debates in Public Thought
Spring 2022 - This class taught by professor Anheier has been my favorite class at UCLA. It was so rich in its contents and thoughtful in its design. Because of this class, I decided I wanted to double major in public affairs. Professor Anheier clearly cares greatly about the students and the future.
Fall 2021 - I loved Pub Aff 50! As a first-year pre-public affairs major, I was very happy to have the opportunity to take this class. The first half focuses on democratic theory (i.e. what makes a society democratic) and the second half focuses more on social inequality (i.e. racism, classism, sexism). There are two 5-7 page papers, one on each half of the course that account for about 33% of your grade each. The other 34% is participation in section. Your TA determines all of your grade. The lectures are AMAZING! So interesting and engaging. My favorite class I took this quarter and I would 110% take another with Dean Segura if given the chance.
