"Tests? Not many" "Amazing lectures" "Respected by students"

Great & passionate lecturer. Takes a dull & hard subject & makes it easier to understand. PPTs on GS. Everyother week a 3pg reflection is due based off of what you think about the material- very easy. MT & F prompts given 2wks before due date. Great class, I'm def. taking a class with him again.

Soc185A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the "crazy" teachers that's fun. He really tries to get you to think even if you trying to sit in the back and blowing the class off, you are always interested because its fun. Power points are boring, but they are all online so attendance is whatever, just benefits you if you don't understand the PPs. Weekly 2 page paper easy

Wow!He really loves what he does. He takes an extremely tough subject to wrap your brain around, and actually makes it understandable. He is one of the best professors that I have had at UCSB.

SocMass Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Sociology of Mass Communications. Jon Cruz is by far the best professor at UCSB. My rec's often say how good I think the prof is but Cruz is really the best teacher I have ever had. He speaks the perfect Soc language and everything he says makes perfect sense. If you like Sociology and media, this is a must take.
