I took this course as a lower division for my minor. I didn't expect to be as interested in it as I was and to be honest, I was excited that it was Bruincasted. However, once I came to class for the first week I knew that I would be attending every lecture I could in person. Moore is an engaging professor and its pretty funny. The material isn't particularly difficult so I don't think that attendance is mandatory but I went just because he was funny and interesting.

This was a pretty easy class overall. I took this class as a prerequisite for my global health minor and it was minimal work. Just weekly response papers due and mandatory attendance for section but you are allowed to miss one. The midterm and final is pretty easy, the same format and all you have to do is memorize the slides. Moore is a pretty engaging lecturer but I didn't attend class after the midterm and was completely fine. The topics were really engaging though so I would completely recommend this class as an easy GE or as a prerequisite.

I think this is a really great class. I am a psychobio major (pre-med) but I have always taken interest in international studies classes. For those who take this class to really get something out of it, it is an amazing class. I will admit the class was a decent amount of reading and memorization, but the tests are easy enough.

Professor Moore is great and I found this class to be really interesting. The curriculum is really broad and so we cover a ton of content in 10 weeks, and the topics change pretty dramatically week to week. There were required readings for each lecture as well as a weekly response paper to one of two prompts. The first half of the course focused on geography/economy/politics, while the second half of the course focused on culture. I personally found the content to be really interesting and felt like I learned a lot. Lectures are clear and interesting, and I found Professor Moore to be a good lecturer. Discussion sections were once a week and felt like a waste of time; they consisted of student presentations that essentially summarized the week's reading. There was a midterm and a final, both consisting of 5 true/false questions (mostly straightforward but sometimes a bit tricky) and then short essay questions based on our readings. There are some really specific theories covered in the course that I was worried about having to memorize, but exams were always really fair and the essay topics covered really big picture themes. Overall, interesting class with good exposure to different issues and theories in international development studies.

This was the best and most thought provoking class I took in my time at UCLA. Looking back it's by far the most interesting class I took. I can't overstate how knowledgeable the professor is on the topics he is teaching and I guarantee that you will not regret studying this material!

Not a good lecturer and an unfair grader. He is nice, but not worth the stress.

This class was super interesting and I felt that I learned a lot. Would definitely recommend for an easier GE. However, there are A LOT of covered readings that you need to understand to do well in the course. The midterm and final just consist of 8 oral questions that are open notes. So if you spend time planning and watching lectures it's super easy to score high. There is also a 750-word paper where you have to pitch what you think should be added to the course. Definitely take this class!
