As he likes us to call him, Scott, is probably the best lecturer I’ve had at UCLA. He loves his subject, teaches it well, and it’s near-impossible to not get an A!

Take his classes!

Midterm: defining 15 terms, take home, tons of time
Final: 3-4 pg paper, on almost any topic, take home tons of time

Scott is a very knowledgeable professor and will help you a lot if you attend his office hours. However, because of the online nature of the course, the lectures can be unengaging at times.

I took this class out of genuine interest, and I received no Major / GE credits for it. That being said, the professor means well, and he's an interesting lecturer. However, the lectures were hard to remain engaged in over Zoom. Lecture attendance is required. The paper and midterm grading were vague. Overall the workload was essentially zero; however the grading made it difficult to achieve an A in my experience. Overall this class is ehh.

Professor Abramson was very knowledgeable on the topic, and gave interesting and thorough lectures. Classes are just him lecturing using a powerpoint. The class was very interesting and taught me a lot, I would take it again and take another class taught by Professor Abramson.
