I took Sociology 156 with Professor Michael Calderón-Zaks during Spring of 2020. Given that it was the beginning of the full-time online learning experience, the Professor really gave it his all to ensure that the class was accessible to all students regardless of time zone. Each week, a short quiz based on the essays was due which reviewed the main ideas of the assigned passages. The quizzes were relatively easy, but were a great way to motivate students to actually do the assigned readings. In all of my years as a UCLA student, I believe that Professor Calderón-Zaks has employed assigned readings the most effectively out of all of my previous Professors. Each article was extremely engaging and eye-opening and I still find myself referencing the topics that I learned from these readings as well as his lectures in my day-to-day life. I believe truly that Sociology 156 with Professor Calderón-Zaks was the best class of my Undergraduate experience and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an accessible way to learn more about the racial disparities in our country.

The class was eh. Didn't really learn much in this class. The midterm was not good and a lot of people complained that the prompt was confusing. There is no extra credit and both TAs were harsh, unforgiving graders. I thought this class would be interesting, but i prefer you take it with another professor.

Absolute worst professor I have ever taken at UCLA. Does not care about his students well being, nor does he care about the learning process of his class to begin with. He did not give us back our final grade, our research paper grade, or half of our homework scores until the night before grades were finalized. From a student who gets straight As at ucla, avoid this professor.
