Linda Van leuven
Professor Van Leuven is very passioniate about what she teaches. I'd easily say that she's the best professor I've had here at UCLA. She has a great way of teaching that keeps your attention (not to mention a great sense of humor) and encourages student participation. However, the workload is not easy and neither are some of the theories (although a lot of them are really interesting). She assigns a lot of weekly reading (requires 10 postings, one for every week) and you pretty much have to do all of it (well, most of it) if you want to do well in the class. Don't take this class if you don't want to think. Don't take the class if you're just expecting an easy ride. But do take it for a new experience and for someone who wants to have a professor that truly believes in what she teaches.
