This is my very first class with Professor Abrego and I have to say that it was an amazing experience. Abrego is very passionate and concerned about students opening up their scope to Central American history and current struggles. The class requires you to do weekly article readings along with three assigned books that you read throughout the quarter (when assigned). I missed a lot of her lectures due to a family emergency and she was very understanding and did not penalize me for class participation. The final is an 8pg research paper, and the midterm is the same. Super easy class. Def recommend.

Professor Olivia-Alvarado has been one of my favorite professors at UCLA. This was my first Chicano/a class I took and I’m glad it was with her. She’s a very friendly professor who is really passionate about what she’s lecturing about.
The class itself consisted of a take home midterm paper where you choose 2 questions and write a short essay on them, a final paper and a group project. None of it is very difficult, as long as you put in effort. I personally didn’t buy the books and just used the slides when needed.
