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.
Winter 2020 - Pros: His assignments asked problems that asked us to think critically and related to real-life scenarios He brought in a plethora of interesting guest speakers. Cons: He didn't grade his own assignments and they were graded extremely harshly when I brought it to his office hours he seemed shocked at the grade but did not change it. To be fair he did disclaim that the first one would be so that we would know what he wanted in the next one. However, he got rid of one of the assignments that was initially on the syllabus so this first harshly graded one weighs heavily on the final grade His lectures were boring to be quite frank. I was very interested in working in the non-profit sector but his class made it look unappealing. Also, he never provided rubrics for any assignments so it was very difficult to know what he wanted.
