AVOID!! Completely misled us on what was going to be on the midterm, handed out a study guide but 1 of the 3 questions on the test wasn't even on it. Said we should have known it since it was mentioned (briefly) in lecture (why even bother with a guide?!?). I'm a pretty patient student, but I got so frustrated ended up dropping the class.

Avoid. The class was a joke/prof is immature/does not care about her students.

Andrea honestly couldn't care less about her students. Her instructions are SO vague, and she doesn't even read your essay properly and just gives out mediocre marks despite your effort, and hands back work > than a month later. Never replies emails, picks favourites. Too much time wasted trying to over complicate easy concepts. Avoid at all costs.

I took 305&309 got an A in 305 and a D in 309. Completely bogus. She threw massive curve balls into her tests, barely reviewed for us and had some very strange expectations. When I went to talk to her about my miderm she was not very helpful or understanding. I liked the content of the courses & she is a nice person but the tests were BRUTAL.

I took Anth 309&305 this year with Andrea and they were hands down my favourite courses I have taken so far at UVIC. I found her an easy person to talk to and very helpful. I really enjoyed the content we covered in both classes and her enthusiasim for the material.

She missed more lectures than I did. Found it difficult to understand what she was looking for. Liked her as a person, she was easy to listen to and friendly. Interesting content. I am not an artsy abstract thinker, so I did not enjoy.

I took Anth305&309 with Andrea and they were some of the most thought provoking classes I have taken. Fun as well with fairly easy tests. But put a lot of effort into the projects and it will be rewarded

Andrea is an extremely intelligent, dedicated professor who is genuinely interested in teaching her students. She makes herself available to anyone who has a question. She does have high expectations but university course shouldn't be about slacking. Read the textbook, attend her lectures and you will emerge with a high, well-deserved grade. A+

I think she is a prof who cares about her students and wants them to do well. She is easy to talk to If you don't understand something, she'll do her best to explain it. Her exams aren't too difficult if you go over the lectures.

She really cares about answering your questions. The material is very advanced and her lectures are needed. The exams are difficult and cover a lot of material and concepts. The course was very interesting and the hard work was worth it.

This prof cancelled 7 classes due to meetings, a gallery exhibition and 'not having any more lecture material' for the full last 2 weeks. She assigned 2 textbooks that were expensive, and one was not even used. The course topic was interesting, she knows her stuff, but I found her to be really unorganized and lazy in the cancellation of lectures.

Andrea knows what she is talking about. At first the class is overwhelming because of the work and reading but if you talk to her and get her to proofread your stuff (she likes her writing a certain way), she will help you get the grade you want. Make sure you read, if you dont, youre screwed.

A very interesting lecturer, but extremely hard marker. You can tell she cares about the subject, but her expectations for her class are too high.

If she likes you and you think exactly what she thinks, you're in. If not ... run while you can.

One of the best prof. I've ever met. Always gave sharpshooting advice. The class was not easy but made me think a lot.
