I thought it was interesting that Professor Barragan has his PhD in philosophy, but can fluently teach Ev Psych. He made this class exceptionally understandable through his assigned readings and lectures. EP is an interesting subject which can be complicated (to some) to understand since the foundation of its core elements resides in theory. Yet, professor Barragan made it very understanding and totally made his class engaging. Our grade depended on two exams: midterm and a final which was MCQ. The exams were not difficult if you studied. And he did provide a study guide which was very helpful. Every week he assigned us readings that were academic articles or chapters from books which he provided through the course website. The most we read in one week was like 40 Pages, but most readings were in the range of 15-20 pages. He answered emails promptly and was very open to accommodations. He also used slides. He does lecture a little fast but he is very open to questions. It would be more of an assumption, but I think the majority of the class did well. I would def recommend him for this course.

The class isn't so bad, you just need to make sure you understand and listen to the lectures. I would listen to all the lectures on podcast and pause and go and he went through it. It's a lot of material, not necessarily hard though. I never read the book, but really knew my lectures well and did well in the class. The entire class is based on your midterm and final. Just study hard and you should be fine. I have all my notebook with all the lectures notes and my study guides. They should be efficient to do well in the class.

I took her Korean American experience class, which is not difficult. One midterm, paper, and take home final are easy. But to be honest, I think she is probably one of the worst Asian Am professors I've had. I thought that some of these reviews might be biased, but after taking her class I have to say some of the concerns are definitely spot on. Firstly, professor park makes very uncomfortable(if even borderline racist) remarks when comparing Koreans to other races. The worst is when she laughs after those remarks. I'm not sure if its a nervous laughter or uncontrollable, but seriously she needs to stop doing that. She alienates so many of her non-Asian students through her remarks and I saw almost half of them drop after the first week. Makes me really worried that she says she's going to be teaching a course on racism next quarter.
Her lectures are meandering and most students can't even follow her reasoning. She ALWAYS goes past the lecture time, which is pretty inconsiderate of her since most students have other classes to attend.
Also, she puts such a huge emphasis on the LA riot and Korean-latino relations because of her research and makes us do a bunch of unnecessary and irrelevant research on it too. She also provides so many readings that she will never discuss in class. She makes you read the manuscript for her book, which for the most part is convoluted and nobody cares about. Basically, a waste of my time taking this class.
