Tufts University: George Marcopoulos - History - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
George Marcopoulos | HIST011 - Europe Since 1815 | History2005-01-28

Review:
I took this course last spring and overall it was a good course if you like history. Professor Marcopoulos is very approachable, his lectures are pretty interesting and the readings are good overall. The TA I had was very helpful and the section meeting (required) though a bit boring at times, was really useful in the end.

Workload:
In the section of the course I took we had 10 2-3 page weekly essays and 10 journal entries. You could do twelve of each to get extra credit. I thought the essays might be too much at first, but they proved really helpful in studying for the exams. Three exams: an intro exam, a midterm and final. The reading is moderate but well related to what he talks about in lecture. A good grade is certainly possible, but you have to do some work to get it.

George Marcopoulos | HIST010 - Europe to 1815 | History2005-01-15

Review:
I don't think Professor Marcopoulos ever looked up while he was lecturing. He read off some book filled with notes for 50 minutes, and the class spent the entire time trying to keep up with what he was saying. He does not take questions during class to ensure that he gets through the daily lecture. That being said, this class isn't particularly hard. Make sure you go to recitation and make sure you get the work that is assigned finished on time. If you do what they assign and not make it look done hastily, you will do well. Go to the review sessions led by the TA's and ask them about everything. The TA's pretty much end up saying everything that you'll remember. Overall, pretty boring, but if you're looking for a not so challenging A, then this is it.

Workload:
If you did all the assigned reading, it is a lot. If you did what needed to be done for the assigned essays/journal entries, then about 1.5-2 hours of work a week. 1 1-2 page essay per week, 1 midterm, 1 "term" exam, 1 final. 5-6 Journal entries (opinionated history answers) due before the term exam and before the final exam.

George Marcopoulos | HIST010 - Europe to 1815 | History2004-04-09

Review:
Professor Marcopoulos can seem monotonous and boring at times, but you will not find another professor more knowledgeable about their subject matter. Make sure you're in class for a few of his best lectures (Russian Revolution!). Great TA's keep you informed and answer all your questions in mandatory section.

Workload:
One 1-2 page paper a week based on the lectures for that week. 25ish pages of reading per class. One early exam, a midterm, and a final, none of which include the material covered on previous exams.
