This was by far the most pointless class I’ve taken at UCLA. Pretty much one of the worst online classes I’ve ever taken (out of about 20). I did not learn a single thing – I may actually be dumber for taking it! BUT – I got an A+, without much effort, and without going to any lectures. SO if you want an easy A with just a little bit of effort go for it – if you actually want to learn something – stay away.

i took M115b with Sabl and overall most of the topics we discussed in class were very interesting. Sabl was very enthusiastic about teaching and always like to end his lectures with a very dramatic statement. He didn't post the lecture slides online so it was very important to go to all the lectures. Also his slides were very vague and only included a very brief overall ouline of the lecture so it is important to pay close attention and take notes. The course consisted of three papers and a final. The paper topics were not that difficult and for the second and third papers he gave several prompts/topics to choose from. There were about six different books and a course reader required for the course. I found many of the readings very difficult to understand and didn't get much out of reading them. It was much more important to go to lecture and discussion. The final consists of 2 essays and you are expected to reference the readings throughout the entire course. Sabl does not give a review or outline for the final of what is important for the final because he says that "everything from the entire course is important that is why i taught it in the first place." overall not a bad class and i ended up with a b+

Course taken: PSM115C

This is an absolutely wonderful course, especially for people who want to discuss the issues facing current society.

Instead of just reading theorists of the past, Walker works hard to make students question what citizenship means in the current era. He is very open with his views and is welcome to students asking questions and debating/discussing in class. He always makes sure both sides are heard. Not a hard class if you read and a great experience.
