She comes unprepared. Her TA's don't communicate with each other and all think they run the course. Grading is arbitrary and very subjective. Learn almost nothing. She constantly skips classes and changes the syllabus.

Dana March is easily one of the best, most engaging profs I have ever had. The class topics seemed very boring and somewhat dry on the syllabus, but Professor March had a way of making them interesting and accessible for all students. The class as very fun and had an inventive project to explore the public health of NYC, and really promoted a hands-on, active approach to learning and investigating public health issues. The class itself is very broad and easy for students without an previous public health interests.

Workload:

Three papers 2000 words long on public health issues of a neighborhood, city, then a nation. Since the prompt is very open, it is easy to do and you can find a way to write on something you are passionate about. Also a Neighborhood Tour project, that comes with a powerpoint and an analysis.

Dana March is great. No final/midterms, just three very doable papers and a group project. I will say that she doesn't really provide a format for the paper, but I'm confident that everyone in class got at least a B. She's fun and engaging -- class is interesting! Even if you haven't done the readings, it's easy to follow. The TA is great, too. They just both love public health and want to share their knowledge without being too overbearing. Anyone should take this class!

Dana is quirky and cool. She makes an effort to learn everyones names and really wants the class be accessible to and suit the needs of the students. She has changed around multiple things to make sure we are learning everything we want to. She's so nice and friendly! The class isn't too much work on the whole, an article or two for each class. These are generally interesting especially if public health is something you naturally care about. Even if it isn't, this introductory class makes everyone feel like its a topic they can be interested in on some level especially because of its broad scope and pertinent nature. Public Health is something everyone in our world should know a little bit about. There are no exams, only three papers and a group project. Take this class!!

Workload:

light, weekly short readings, group project, and three doable papers.
