Had an asynchronous class with him, absolutely horrible. He was so monotone and made it as difficult as possible to follow the lectures. His lack of enthusiasm has drained already a very draining academic year. He grades on a curve and he does not give any indication of how you did on exams. (I got D on midterm because I "misinterpreted" one of the prompts"). I do not recommend at all.

182 with Lal is rough if you're not interested in political sociology. Personally, the material was not interesting at all, and thus hard to get through.
I definitely would NOT recommend taking this class if your a soc major trying to fill one of the core requirements. but if you have to bite the bullet, it could be worse, i dont know how, but it could.

I took this class Winter 2002. It's a very interesting class, and Professor Roy organizes it well (in terms of lectures). First off, this is a writing class. Grades are dependent on papers and how well you do on them. There is also involvement with reading (4 books), but it compliments the lectures really well. I learned from both the reading and the lectures. But reading the first book (about journalism) in entirety was useless. Mainly because the issue was glazed over fairly quickly. If there is one thing I would criticize it would be that the reading, although moderate, is at times unnecessary. But Prof. Roy engages his students in class: asks them questions, asks their opinions, etc. This is a tactic that shows a professor is interested in his class, and not just in himself and his own lecture. Professor Roy also has a TA named Kathy Lee, who is excellent and provides great discussions. She is both knowledgable and approachable. I recommend this class/professor--mainly because it is a fair class and for Roy, who teaches with simplicity, bet never at the expense of intellect.

Just to give a different point of view from the last review give, I took this class during my first quarter at UCLA and my TA was Nada also. The last review was a great summary of the class but I want to give my personal experience in case it helps future students. I am a transferred student and it was my first quarter. I took this class per recommendation of my New Student Advisor (NSA), when I went to see a counselor before the quarter started she said don't take this class in your first quarter here because it's a tough class. I chose not to drop it because I really want to finish my undergrad in 2 years and given the time most of the Sociology classes were already full. Professor was great and so was the TA, I did all the work and attended all classes. It is tough though, you have to do all the readings in order to keep up with the class. The only thing I didn't really like is the midterm is only like 8 multiple choice and fill in and then you have a short answer and then a long answer question, so if you miss a few of the multiple choice or fill in and don't do great on the short and long answer you get a low grade. Theres basically not a lot of room for error. If I can retake this class, I probably would so I can get a better grade with the same professor, as a transfer student from a community college who had only taken one political science class before, I'd say I just wasn't mentally prepared for the work load and the depth of this class.
