DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFFESOR! She is not a teacher, she is a researcher. Her lectures are unorganized and I was lost from day one. She has no structure!! She turns off all the lights when she lectures (all pictures btw, u can't write anything down) and everyone falls asleep. She see's people falling asleep right In front of her yet she doesn't care! She can not teach at ALL let alone work the computer! I took her my first quarter thinking her class would be interesting.... I was SO wrong! I lost all hope after this class. I expected more from Ucla. And trust me, my opinion isn't bias because everyone would talk shit on her, and her rediclously hard grading methods. Pease... Please take another class or you will hate yourself and ucla after this !!
Spring 2018 - Pros: -The class itself was interesting and Dr. Carter is very knowledgable in her field. -Workload is relatively light - midterm/final are both take home + one 8 page research paper + some participation points Cons: -lectures are dry and powerpoint is hard to look at (blue and yellow background in a dim room) -she's not really good at communicating and replying to emails and being clear about dates etc. Overall: workload is good and its not as bad as the other reviews say but just be prepared!
