This is the easiest class I have taken at UCLA. I recommend taking it as a GE with Marcella at all costs.

Quarter: Fall 2019
Grade: A+
March 19, 2020

This is the EASIEST class I have ever taken! Grades were based off of attendance/participation, two essays, a midterm and final exam. As for attendance, Professor Ernest would ask us to write on a paper about our lecture and turn it in to our TAs at the end. My TA did not ask us to participate much in discussion. As long as we were there, we got credit. Everyone received 100/100 on the first paper, which was a positionality paper. The second essay was a critical analysis paper and you were able to pick your own topic. My TA was an easy grader, I honestly believe that you could get an A as long as you completed it. The midterm and final were OPEN-NOTES! You did not have to study for these exams, as long as you went to class, you were able to get A+ on the exams. You are also able to get extra credit from the midterm and final exams.

Professor Ernest showed lots of videos and art to the class. I thought it was interesting to see these different forms of art. However, the class as a whole was very unorganized. Sometimes the professor did not know what she was talking about and would assign random assignments. These assignments were easy, nonetheless but I would have appreciated more structure for the class.

This class tanked my gpa. Honestly it was mostly my fault, I was juggling 4 other classes so my participation was trash, but honestly the lectures were so incredibly boring I don't think going would've made a difference. Take it however you want, this is the worst grade I've gotten since junior yr of high school. I would not touch this class with a ten foot pole

If you're searching for the easiest GE on campus, then you're looking in the right place. Class grade is based on participation (if you draw breath you'll get 100%), 2 papers (first one they gave everyone 100%), a midterm (multiple choice section is open-note and take home section is jokes), and a final (also open-note).

If that sounds like a bad time, that's okay because college isn't for everyone. But, if what you desire is an A+ in a 5 unit class and a bunch of time to beat your meat in lecture, then you know what to do!

I love this professor. Honestly she’s super funny and lecture is never dull. She also cancels lecture during Halloween because she gives you this really interesting forked assignment! Best prof of my quarter by far. TAKE HER. Class material is pretty interesting and you definitely learn a lot. She’s super chill and easily approachable too. tests are alright although the final was pretty long. My TA graded harsher than the others but overall, a good chill class to fulfill diversity. Take it with this woman, you won’t regret it.
