Tufts University: Kerry Chase - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Kerry Chase | PS051 - Introduction to International Relations | Political Science2006-05-18

Review:
Althought this class is very interesting and procides a great basis for IR majors, the professor is not. He is unpleasant and arrogant, this becomes evident in close contact (office hours). Professor Chase biggest shortcoming is the fact that he does not aknowledge other opinions and believes that his "way" is the only right "way".

Workload:
The workload is not bad, although the readings may be challenging at times. There is one midterm, one paper, and one final.

Kerry Chase | PS051 - Introduction to International Relations | Political Science2006-05-16

Review:
It was evident from the first lecture that Chase is a good lecturer and very knowledgable. It was also evident that he was not very knowledgable about teaching a large class with a lot of overly anxious Freshman. He's great at running class, he's just not good at the other part. My semester with him was made a lot worse by the horrible TA's. Chase didn't seem to care much about what his TA's did and that really sucked. The only other problem was that his lectures didn't go beyond his powerpoints, and neither did his tests.

Workload:
If you do the work, it's a lot. If Chase is teaching, don't do the readings. There's also not much reason to go to lecture. Read the Powerpoints on the web. Reciciation is mandatory (a whopping 15% on the final grade?!?) so go.

Kerry Chase | PS051 - Introduction to International Relations | Political Science2006-04-08

Review:
Professor Chase is one of the best professors at Tufts. He is kind, intelligent and cares about class participation. He asks for volunteers to answer questions and if someone is mistaken he does not embarass them. He shows great decency and regard for his students.

Workload:
20% midterm, 30% paper, 35% final, 15% recitation participation. Very fair and reasonable.

Kerry Chase | PS051 - Introduction to International Relations | Political Science2006-04-04

Review:
Professor Chase is incredibly intelligent and kind. Even when a student states an obviously incorrect answer during lecture, Professor Chase does not embarass the student. He is the consummate professional. In fact, he is so great, I will register for his class next semester and ask him to be my advisor.

Workload:
1 midterm, 1 critical essay (10 pgs), 1 final, attendence/participation in recitation. All very standard.

Kerry Chase | PS176 - US Foreign Economic Policy | Political Science2005-10-04

Review:
This professor is the most talented lecturer I have yet experienced at Tufts. He presents his ideas clearly and maintains a highly sophisticated, articulate pattern of speech whether in delivery of the lecture, or taken off in a tangent by a student question/idea/opinion. Very interesting class to attend, I have never dozed off.

Workload:
2 essays and a final. Reading assignments for every class but are not unbearable.

Kerry Chase | PS169 - Globalization and Trade Governance | Political Science2005-06-19

Review:
Chase is very professional and concerned with his students' progress. He runs a tight ship, and expects students to be prepared and doesn't particularly like typos and other stupid mistakes in papers, much like life in the real world. He also encourages public speaking through in-class assignments, which seems a bit peculiar but is actually quite useful. He seems intent on combining the subject of the class with the development of real world skills.

Workload:
Reading is hardly required (no quizes)etc, but you want to stay on top of it anyway. In class debates, paper, and powerpoint presentation are graded tough but fairly. One gets the feeling that a high quality of work is expected.
