Dr. Valizadeh is one of the kindest and most genuine professors I have ever take at UCLA. She engages the class and teaches clearly and thoroughly. Participation counts and she truly cares for each student. Above all, the material she teaches is very interesting and the teaching methods she uses work for all learning styles. Exams are not tough and truthfully based completely on class material. Engagement in class discussions is highly recommended. I would 100% take her class again!

Dr. Nooshin is one of my favorite professors at UCLA. She is incredibly compassionate, caring, knowledgable, and fun. She makes the lecture discussions super engaging and interesting. There is no actual midterm/final exams, she gives us options of social media discussion, an event paper and one final paper. In general, this is not a hard class, but you learn a lot and Dr. Nooshin makes everything so fun to learn. She is also an activist and participate in Slut Walk performances etc. Dr. Nooshin enjoys knowing students, by the middle of the quarter, she remembers most students' names and my classmates always participate in active discussions in lectures. I highly recommend this class!!

Nooshin was a great professor and very helpful! One of the only professors that I've had that didn't make me feel like I was being rushed out during office hours. Class is mostly broken up by participation, midterm exam, and a final. Participation is easy, as class discussions are interesting and thought-provoking. She even shows you cool videos on YouTube that relate to class discussions. She offers multiple extra credit opportunities. Definitely recommend taking this class if you have the opportunity!

This class was one of my favorite classes at UCLA. Even though it was a summer course, I looked forward to commuting to this class. Dr. V is an amazing instructor. She cares deeply about what she’s teaching and cares about her students as well. She is empowering, fun and energetic. She made the subject material fun and engaging. I would definitely take this class again if I could. Or any other class taught by this professor!

This was one of my favorite courses at UCLA. This professor actually gives you the opportunity to talk and discuss the materials in this class. She gives you access to all of the literature beforehand. The stress-free environment allowed the class to engage in thoughtful discussion. Professor Valizadeh always made herself available to students and genuinely cares about her work and the lives of her students. I would definitely take her again!

TAKE THIS CLASS!!!!! There are no words to describe Dr. Nooshin she is engaging, smart, insightful, funny ... this class was the best thanks to Dr. Nooshin the topics talked about can be heavy but she has a way of making it fun engaging and educational. She is so sweet and cares for each student so much, she really wants the best for her students. She puts so much time and effort to make this class what is it. This class is totally doable if you just do the reading and come to class you will get an A . I’m so glad I had the pleasure to take this class and I would take another class with Dr. Nooshin in a heart beat !! Dr. Nooshin is the best !!!!

Dr. Nooshin is one of the best professors at UCLA she cares about each of her students on a personal level and does everything in her hands to help them be successful in her class and life in general. Her class consists of a midterm and final paper which are super doable. If you don’t take her class you will never know what a truly inspirational teacher is .

Dr. Valizadeh was absolutely amazing! Her lectures are interactive and interesting as well as the course materials. Dr. Valizadeh puts an immense effort to get to know all her students and cares deeply for each and every one of them! This course was filled with interesting readings about the US education system and really focused on the mere issues we are faced with today. Dr. Valizadeh is super engaging and puts her students first. I have never had such an encouraging professor, she is truly a dedicated professor who is dedicated to her craft. If I could I would take this course again! I highly recommend this course to anyone

Dr. V is an outstanding and passionate professor! Her ability to lecture about real social issues so eloquently is unapologetically inspiring. Besides the readings, which are valuable and necessary, help prepare the class for critical open dialogue – and can be applied to real human experiences. It's best you come to class prepared to get in on the action! What’s also so great about this class is that you get to hear from other students and their life experiences, which is critical for learning and appreciating cultural diversity. It’s a treat when you are inspired to learn, thank you, Dr. V!

UCLA administrators should take note and make this an ACTUAL CORE diversity requirement across ALL departments so that ALL students learn about sociocultural diversity, power dynamics, and sociopolitical resistance in the educational field. Altogether, these are critical frame points of which can help students develop critical and reflective perspectives on social issues.

Dr. Valizsdeh is an amazing professor. She is one of the most empathetic professors I have ever had. She is genuinely passionate about teaching all students. Her lectures are full of enthusiasm and provides real world examples. She allows students to learn from each other and helps us develop strong arguments. I wish UCLA hired more professors like her, I hope she is given the opportunity to teach more classes in the future. Professors like her give UCLA the good reputation it has. She is AMAZING!
