All Ratings and Reviews for Kassem Nabulsi
I feel that Professor Nabulsi is an intelligent, informed and caring professor. I feel that he attempts to challenge students and present different modes of thinking about topics. With this being said, the disorganization of this class cripples and impinges on student learning. 45-60 minutes of each class was spent clarifying questions of students that could have been resolved if there had been a clear understanding of the course, its assignments and its requirements from the beginning. There was a general confusion amongst students about what readings were supposed to have been done when, how assignments were supposed to be completed, when different things were due and more. I was very excited to take this course, and while I feel like I have learned something of value , the frustration I experienced over the course of this class due to its frankly, abysmal organization, completely overshadowed any benefits I received from taking the course and made me, for the first time at UCLA, regret taking a class. The professor has so much to offer, but really needs to rethink his clarity and organization moving forward in order to enhance student learning.
Dr. Nabulsi is a superb professor and UCLA is exceedingly lucky to have someone as knowledgeable as him teaching in the Political Science department. While I agree with some of the merits of the previous review, I still believe that he is one of the better professors in the Political Science department. He is an extremely fair and flexible individual who does not mind making accommodations for the class if the latter believes it will be helpful. In my opinion, the only way Dr. Nabulsi can improve as a professor is by making a revised syllabus and strictly following it for his classes here on out. Above all, Dr. Nabulsi respects his students, and students must likewise respect him as both a person and a professor. I will most certainly take his classes in future quarters.
