Professor Walker is honestly the best professor I have had at UCLA. He is extremely engaging and his love for political philosophy is contagious. You will walk out wanting to be a theory concentration. The class is really easy if you just do the readings, which are not long at all. There are pop quizzes, but he tells you ahead of time when they will be happening. The essays are easy too. Definitely take the class and engage in it. You won't regret it!

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.

FANTASTIC CLASS. I was told to take this class because I heard that Professor Walker had a reputation for being the best teacher in the department.

He lived up to expectations. The class was difficult (the readings were mystifying pieces of cryptic philosophy -- think Luhmann, Habermas) but Professor Walker taught them excellently. What seemed impenetrable became knowable. The process (difficult, difficult texts followed by elucidating in-depth analyses in class) was probably the most rewarding educational experience I've had at UCLA.

Professor Walker was also just fun to listen to. He really loves what he teaches, and it shows. Most of the class was discussion, but the brief lectures he did give were extremely informative and engaging. His enthusiasm is inspiring.

One of the aphorisms Professor Walker threw out was that "pedagogy is the fight against forgetting." I think he won. :)
