I normally don't write reviews, but this professor is awful. His lectures comprise of 10-15 minutes of actual information about the subject and the rest of the class is him ranting about current issues. His grading is awful as he only gives out a certain amount of A's, B's, and C's which means that you may get a lower score if your test is graded last even if you have the same answers as someone who got a higher grade and turned it in earlier (his tests are short answer). He is very sketchy with his grading and the final grades seemed kinda arbitrary. Also, he did not post what we got on our paper or our final which comprised about 60% of our grade, therefore I had to email him to figure out what I got. I did 1.5 points better than someone else in the class on the midterm and we got the same grades for all the other assignments and she received a B while I received an A-, so basically if you want to be graded fairly do NOT take this class. This class caused me so much frustration and I honestly have no idea how a professor like him is allowed to teach at UCLA because he is costing people their chances at grad school due to his stupid grading scale (which he refuses to explain to the students).

During this whole COVID-19 situation, this Professor does not give leniency at all with his"grading curve." I believe I should had earned a B - to a B+ but I got a C+. I find this very odd since Professor is grading on a "curve" and I had passed the Midterm and had attended all of Discussion. I have no idea what I had earned on my Final AND Class Paper. Will not take a class with this Professor again since he also falls behind on lecture on the sociological theorists (basically follows syllabus but is slow at getting through material).

This class was a fair class. Midterm and final are both essay sections in class and one paper. The book is needed to study for the tests, it helps a lot and is easy to understand. I am selling the class book if anyone is interested. My number is 818 821 7705

I've never written an evaluation of a professor before but I felt so strongly about my dislike of this professor that I am. Usually I am not easily offended or sensitive in class but I felt that Jepson was a very rude teacher. He would rant about the state of the world all class, all the while belittling people's religions and saying outrageous statements for effect. I though that his comments ranged from too sexual to racist. I really would not recommend his class.

Hands down probably, the easiest class ever. I took 101 in the summer. I never went to class. I studied/read 3 hours before the actual midterm. And I studied/read the day before the final. I ended up with an "A" with little effort. This class is ridiculously easy and the grading seems pretty lenient. He gives you a study guide before the test. And the on the tests for his 101 and 102 classes, he lists 10 questions, and you choose 6 that you want to answer. Know the basics and you can BS your way through.
