Loved this class even though it was prerecorded lectures! My TA Aeden was the best and our sections helped with the connection to the class. Dr. Perez is very thorough and I thought his lectures were really engaging. He has such a breadth and depth of knowledge relating to the topic, overall super knowledgable.
There were short quizzes based on the readings throughout the quarter. They were so short that the issue was that if you missed one question out of three it would be a terrible grade, so partway through he made them longer. There were 2 short papers (4-6 pages) based on movies, and a take-home final that was open for a while. The grading was pretty easy in my opinion.
There was an extra credit opportunity through participating in one of his studies, which was really easy and took no time at all, and is 2 points added to whatever grading category you want.

I highly recommend students at UCLA who even thinking about doing research to take this course. While everything was online it felt similar to an in-person experience. The course was asynchronous for lectures but discussions were mandatory to attend. We were divided into groups at the beginning of the quarter and then you have to come up with a research topic pertaining to the field of racial and ethnic politics. Then you have to come up with a research proposal draft which you turn in and then you receive feedback and then come up with the final draft. It is a bit competitive because only one proposal gets selected for funding. Additionally, you are taught R programming in this course so you do not need any background in data analysis. Don't be off-put if the Professor does not upload the syllabus right away at the beginning because he is busy with a lot of other tasks but he is always willing to respond to emails or scheduled office hours if you need to meet. I really enjoyed this course and would recommend this to anyone interested in doing research. This course is unique as you are doing hands-on work rather than regurgitating concepts and expected to put it all in an essay. Also, shoutout to my TA Chase if he is a TA again you should take it with him because he is super helpful.
