One of the best professors at UCLA! He cares for all his students and gives so many accommodations. He is so understanding and is always there for his students. The way he teaches is just amazing and very clear. I love him so much and **********000000% recommend everyone to take his class.
Took this class over the summer before my first quarter at ucla and it was an amazing course! I learned a lot about sociology of education and professor Andalon made the class engaging and clear with his slides which were very thorough. Highly recommend!
Andalon is a great professor and this class is a great resource to jumpstart students into their careers. We learned how to make a LinkedIn, create a Resume and Cover Letter, and at the end create a career portfolio using all of the assignments we had been doing throughout the quarter. Being able to finetune my professional documents has been a lifesaver while also getting major credit. The class fills up very quickly because it is useful and the professor does not try to ruin your GPA.
I recommend attending lectures because most of the time there is a guest speaker who is a UCLA Alum and they share how they got to the position they are in today, using their Sociology degree.
Easy A, but unprofessional Professor. So unclear with instructions, unnecessarily strict over the most simple things, and will lecture for hours about absolutely nothing. Most people didn’t show up to class because it was useless. Just read his slides online. If you need an extension or have any questions, good luck! He will chastise you and is extremely aggressive. Take this class for an easy A where you won’t learn anything and deal with nonsensical procedures.
This class was great. Andalon is a great instructor. He cares about the students and it was easy to get an A if you turned in the assignments. He divides the research paper up into 4 parts, and each part leads up to the final paper. He doesn't try to trick you - he just wants the students to learn and be passionate about the subject matter. I would definitely take a class from him again.
This class was extremely doable! Professor Andalon designed it in a way to slowly build our skills with comprehensive assignments and exams. His lectures are a bit dry but overall he is a great professor! The class has one individual assignment (250 words), two other group/individual assignments (250 words minimum), one group project where he lets you work on it in class and section, a midterm comprised of 10 multiple choice questions and an essay section (2 pages), and the final is the same format as the midterm. He also provides a study guide for the midterm and final which is basically the answers on the tests themselves. There is no way that one can do less than a B in this class. In all honesty, this is the easiest class I've taken at UCLA!
This class was interesting and not too challenging! Professor Andalon designed the course in a tangible way that built our skills with assignments. He is a great professor, however paying full attention during lecture can be challenging as it was 2 hours long. He provides a study guide for the midterm and final which comprise 10 multiple choice questions on the exams. Professor Andalon also allows two absences before lack of attendance impacts your grade.
TAKE CLASSES WITH PROFESSOR RICHARD ANDALON. HE IS LITERALLY THE BEST. Makes his classes super accessible for everyone. Worth it. I learn so much and the workload is reasonable.
If you're debating whether to take this class or not, I'm a 4th year w hella experience right here letting you know that all his classes are as good as it gets at UCLA. HE IS AMAZING, UNDERSTANDING, CARING. You hardly ever get accessible classes w professors who care but he does. Take it. Workload is reasonable and you learn so much. TAKE IT
