Quarter: N/A
Grade: N/A
March 8, 2013

I am a senior Asian American studies double major with Psych. I have taken many classes in both fields and I LOVE Asian Am. However, this is the single worst class I have ever taken at UCLA. It is not hard or complicated, but the professor (Park) is absolutely awful. Not only does she not care about her students, and not encourage class discussion, her assignment to interview a "latino customer" person and a "korean store owner" is absolutely ridiculous and frankly was insulting because of the racial slurs and stereotypes it actually ENCOURAGED. Her lectures are biased and she displays hints of racism if not surface level biases that she attempts to brainwash the class with.

This class was insulting because she is racially insensitive and she frequently blurts out biased opinions in her pointed remarks. She has said stupid things like "second generation koreans do not study as much because they are more american," or "what does it mean for koreans if they all become ministers" (while laughing because she thinks they should "become lawyers and doctors instead").

Do not take this class or any other class with this professor, she does not represent anything related to Asian American studies because it is an amazing major.

I originally took this class because I needed extra units. This quarter I took 16 units and was in hope for something easy. This class had doable work but she graded harshly, gave no extra credit and honestly her lectures are heavily biased towards Korean Americans. Did not provide much clarity on what she is looking for in our research paper and did not round for borderline grades. What I would turn in would be A work for other professors but B work according to her. This professor and course honestly disappointed me. I wouldn’t recommend this class or this professor. Save yourself because it’s not an A and she won’t give you one even if you are 1% off.

Quarter: Winter 2018
Grade: A

I really recommend taking this class. Professor Park is very kind and always there for her students. She encourages everyone to do their best and creates a welcoming environment in her class. There are 3 take-home assignments; the midterm essay, interview project, and final essay. All of which are fair as the Professor provides all the articles she wants students to use in the assignments. The professor also had guest speakers in class which were very nice to hear from. I recommend this class!
