Tufts University: Jessica Gugino - History - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Jessica Gugino | HIST018 - HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY | History2005-12-21

She's an extremely sweet lady (she brought cookies and chocolate to the final exam) and is very concerned with student's progress. She's easy to get a hold of outside of class and due dates are relatively flexible as long as you have a plausible reason. The lectures are a little boring, but her teaching style grew on me as the course progressed, and for the most part, the material is interesting. I'd take another class with her.

The workload is not too heavy. There's a lot of reading but as long as you listen to her lectures, you don't necessarily need to do the reading to do well on the exams. She gives a study guide of terms and concepts for the two midterms and the final- exams are a combination of identifications and essays. There's also 10-12 page research paper, but it's very open-ended. Overall, it was pretty reasonable.

Jessica Gugino | CR010JG - RELIGION & SCIENCE | Comparative Religion2004-09-03

This is a fascinating topic, and most of the readings support that. Prof. Gugino is very quiet and sweet, but the lectures were pretty boring. The first half of the semester, she discussed the history of religion and science based on the readings, and that was pretty interesting. She may change the structure, but second semester were student-taught seminars on specific topics followed by discussions. Class became more and more optional.

The midterm and final are completely essays. There's one lengthy research paper (10-15 pages) but is really open-ended. The readings aren't too bad and are usually interesting. Attending class became difficult, even for someone like me who never skips class.
