Loved this class!!! The lectures were amazing!! There was definitely a lot of material being covered in each lecture, so note-taking wise there was a lot to write down! Here is a breakdown of the class:
10 Weekly Quizzes: 5 points each
Read the Syllabus: 1 point
Intro Video: 3 points
Genetics Interview Project: 20 points
Reproduction Interview Project: 20 points
Final Paper: 20 points
Total: 114 points
The Interview Projects I found to be fun and honestly I learned so much about the people I chose to interview. Don't worry they weren't super crazy time consuming, they basically were you talking about the important points of your interview and you tying those points to the lecture material. The final paper was based on a topic of your choice! Overall, the weekly quizzes were super easy and you didn't really need to do the readings! Definitely recommend this class!
This is a FANTASTIC class. I have never felt more engaged and excited to learn without the pressures of having to memorize everything and write every single word down. This is the first class I have ever taken and appreciated for the joy of learning itself. Dr. Fox is so wonderful, and this is definitely my favorite class of my college career so far.
I think Dr. Fox is a fantastic professor! Her lectures were extremely engaging and Anthro 129 was one of the most interesting classes I took at UCLA. She discusses topics in a very in-depth and interdisciplinary way and I think anyone who has an interest in medicine would get something from this class. She clearly cares a lot about the students in her class and was readily available in office hours. I even told her about a performance I was involved in at UCLA and she attended with her husband.
