Winter 2021 - Yes, the class is intense. There are a lot of readings to do, and the material is not only sensitive but dense (yet VERY interesting!). However, if you are genuinely interested in learning about immigration, take it. Professor Waldinger has so much knowledge to offer, and he genuinely cares for his students. I got a 99 and 100 on the midterm and final, but I worked my ass off for it. If you think you will be procrastinating, I would say this class is not for you. I often stayed up while balancing four other classes to make sure I wasn't behind on the readings. I made sure to attend every discussion, participated to the best of my knowledge and actively asked questions to make sure I was understanding the material correctly. I attended the study sessions offered both by Professor and the TA. If it helps, I was juggling this class while reading a total of 2100+ pages (for other classes) at certain weeks, and I am the type of person who cannot skim for the life of me. If I can do it, so can you (with proper time management). Don't take this class if you are looking for an easy A; however, if you genuinely want to learn and are willing to put in the work, I truly believe it will be such a rewarding experience. Finally, if you plan on taking this class, GO TO OFFICE HOURS! I went to my TA's office hours, and even this in itself helped SO much. I do agree with the previous reviews that this class should be worth 5-6 units due to the intense workload. Conclusion: Difficult? Yes. Hard work? Yes. Intense? Yes. Rewarding? Yes. Is it possible to get an A? YES!
