I LOVE Eric and this class. I would take it again in a heartbeat. He is hands down one of the coolest, most down-to-earth, knowledgeable professors I've ever had. He is passionate about the content and though it is pretty emotionally heavy, he is very mindful of it and puts the needs of students and their mental health in high regard. He makes the course enjoyable and engaging. We had a hybrid structure and often used break out groups. Zoom attendance was mandatory and you were supposed to have your camera on, and you could skip one with no penalty. Assignments for each class are to annotate readings on a shared doc style website where you can respond to your classmates. Two assignments outside of this, a reading review and the final which are both papers that are very flexible. Overall, I feel like I have honestly learned a lot and the class was far from dreadful. I hope to take another one of his courses in the future (even though this isn't even my major), take him if you get the chance.

Professor Martin is hands down one of the best at UCLA. Initially, I took this class because it was open. As a person with zero interest in anything religion-related, I walked away from this class with a deep appreciation for things I used to brush off. If you ever have the pleasure of taking a class with him, do not let the opportunity slip by. The class is graded on many things which gives you the chance to earn an "A" still even if you mess up in one area. The pace is manageable and the class discussions are truly amazing. I would take any class Professor Martin teaches.

Professor Martin is fantastic. I took the fascism class, so this may or may not pertain to you. The class uses a website called Perusall, where you can comment on readings and reply to other student's comments. It's really engaging and productive because everyone has different opinions, and it makes for some really good discussions. We discuss a lot of big topics, so I won't spoil it for you, but you read articles that are comprehensive and informative. There's one textbook for the class, but he posts it. If you want to rent it, you can definitely do that too. The midterm is an essay about the readings, and the final is the same essay but a bit longer. Overall, I would highly highly recommend this class. You'll learn a lot about fascism and how it plays a role in our present day society.
