Dr. Patterson is my favorite Political Science professor at UCLA by far. He really knows how to engage his classes with his informative and entertaining lectures. Often times I find myself spacing out during long lectures, but Dr. Patterson knows how to make his presentations very relevant and even squeezes in interactive Kahoot quizzes for easy participation points. Dr. Patterson is very approachable and easy to talk to, and I am lucky to have been able to take his class two quarters in a row, and I am excited to continue to do so next quarter. He is also open to doing research together if you are looking to go down that path. He is an amazing professor who deserves only the best perks at UCLA.

Patterson gives a pretty hard midterm, but offers opportunity for extra credit. He gives pop quizzes on the readings - there are a LOT of readings. But the final gives you a chance to get your grade up. Funny lectures with lots of memes.

This professor was amazing. Unfortunately for y'all he dipped to Vanderbilt University out in Tennessee. He literally brought in his luggage to class on the last lecture XD. It was kind of sad but hopefully he's rocking it out there.
