Tufts University: James Glaser - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
James Glaser | PS011 - Intro to American Politics | Political Science2005-08-09

Review:
I took this AND his southern politics class. I love his style in a lecture, and I think he makes it interesting. Grading is relative and sometimes feels harsh, but that's true in all poli sci classes. Beware him in person, though. You feel like you know him and like he knows you, but that's not true- he just exudes the feeling like a good politician. If you get nervous around people who you suspect aren't being sincere, don't go to him for advice, visit a TA instead.

James Glaser | PS011 - Intro to American Politics | Political Science2005-01-19

Review:
Very engaging and interesting professor. Despite the course material being a review of material from AP classes in high school, he managed to make it informative and engaging, bringing forth new points that I hadn't considered before. It's a shame that he is a Dean now and no longer teaching this class as he was a real teaching asset to the Tufts Community.

Workload:
Workload was relatively light reading with a few short papers as well as a midterm and a final.

James Glaser | PS011 - Intro to American Politics | Political Science2004-08-21

Review:
The class was, to put it frankly, blah. Glaser was always late to class, and always went over with time. His lectures were very unstructured, making it very difficult to take any notes of any kind. I think it?s because he is busy, with his new position as dean. Also, the TAs were unhelpful and rude. I e-mailed my TA asking to meet to discuss my final paper, and he blew me off completely, and said he needed at least four or five days advance notice before he could meet with a student.

Workload:
There are two tests, and two 4-5 page papers. I was able to scrunch out a B+, despite the fact that my TA gave me crappy grades on papers, but I gained it back on the tests (which were not that challenging).

James Glaser | PS011 - Intro to American Politics | Political Science2004-07-16

Review:
Every college freshman should take this class. I learned so much (about stuff that a college student should know about politics that I had no clue about). Loved going to lecture really interesting, but it is really hard to skip class ?cause you miss too much.

Workload:
A lot of reading (if you do it all)...but manageable.

James Glaser | PS011 - Intro to American Politics | Political Science2004-05-12

Review:
Professor Glaser reminds me of one of the fake reporters on Jon Stewart. He's so funny. He's always been available too. I'd love to take a class with him again. I don't think I would've loved this course though if he didn't teach it. It wasn't the most interesting class.

Workload:
Everything was pretty fair. Midterm and non-cumulative final, 2 papers, random readings.

Review:
Professor Glaser is energetic and shows a great interest in the course material and students? understanding. Professor Glaser makes the 50 minutes fly by with insightful and entertaining lectures. Many students looked forward to going to class, and many thinking about majoring in political science were drawn in after taking American Politics.
