Fall 2018 - Dr. Nooshin is one of my favorite professors at UCLA. She is incredibly compassionate, caring, knowledgable, and fun. She makes the lecture discussions super engaging and interesting. There is no actual midterm/final exams, she gives us options of social media discussion, an event paper and one final paper. In general, this is not a hard class, but you learn a lot and Dr. Nooshin makes everything so fun to learn. She is also an activist and participate in Slut Walk performances etc. Dr. Nooshin enjoys knowing students, by the middle of the quarter, she remembers most students' names and my classmates always participate in active discussions in lectures. I highly recommend this class!!
Summer 2019 - Dr. Nooshin is one of the best professors at UCLA she cares about each of her students on a personal level and does everything in her hands to help them be successful in her class and life in general. Her class consists of a midterm and final paper which are super doable. If you don’t take her class you will never know what a truly inspirational teacher is .
Summer 2019 - Nooshin was a great professor and very helpful! One of the only professors that I've had that didn't make me feel like I was being rushed out during office hours. Class is mostly broken up by participation, midterm exam, and a final. Participation is easy, as class discussions are interesting and thought-provoking. She even shows you cool videos on YouTube that relate to class discussions. She offers multiple extra credit opportunities. Definitely recommend taking this class if you have the opportunity!
Fall 2018 - Dr. V was one of the most genuine profs I have ever had. She really cares about her students. She realized that books were expensive and so after the first day of class she put all the readings online so we didn't have to buy anything for the class. Her lectures were engaging and she was so helpful with teaching us how to write well. She even had grad students come in and talk to us about grad school. They also gave us their contact info and told us they would help in any way they could. I have never met a prof so genuinely dedicated to her students. She's amazing and so were her TAs. If you get the chance definitely take a class with her she's the best!
