Tufts University: Gerard Gasarian - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Gerard Gasarian | FR032A - Readings in French Literature II | French2005-04-27

Review:
Professor Gasarian is one of the most unique and best professors that I have had. He is extremely bright and adds a wealth of insight to the class discussion. At the same time, he respects each individual's views and ties them in very well to the main themes of the readings. He has a goods sense of humor and doesn't put too much weight on participation, although it still is important. He is enthusiastic about the material, and is available out of class (although he won't speak English to you!)

Workload:
This is one of the few classes that I have taken at Tufts where the workload is actually perfectly reasonable. There is a good amount of reading but nothing that will take you more than 1-2 hours (per class). The readings can be tough and there's a lot of difficult vocabulary (especially with the poetry) but a lot is explained in class and it's not like you need to know everything. There are three compositions for the semester with relatively open topics, 2 mandatory presentations that you must do on the reading (they're relatively informal, just pick an aspect of the reading that will promote class discussion), and a written final exam on the last book that you read. Very reasonable.

Gerard Gasarian | FR032A - Readings in French Literature II | French2005-04-06

Review:
Professor Gasarian is one of the best Tufts professors I've had. He is very easy to understand, and is realistic in his expectations from students. He has a great sense of humor which makes class interesting. The books he chose were very interesting and he seems to just love teaching. Class involvement is encouraged but not demanded. I would definitely take another class with him.

Workload:
Reasonable amounts of reading - increases as the semester goes on, but most assignments can be done in 1 - 2 hours. We also had 3-4 papers to write over the semester and the length starts at 2 pages and increases over the semester, 2 oral presentations and I believe there is a final exam.
