This class will be taught in the Winter Quarter @ UCLA Extension...

Much of this class is set up for you to work on your own time asynchronously, although we will meet on some Tuesdays from 6-8 p.m. (refer to Class Schedule for exact dates and times). The rest of the time, you will engage in doing asynchronous work for the class (meaning on your own time) which will include posting to discussion boards, doing research online, and other home work.
