Tufts University: Jeff Langstraat - Sociology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Jeffrey is an absolutely fantastic lecturer! I guarantee that you'll laugh during every class. His obvious passion for the course material makes it such that class discussions seem so relevant and important to your everyday life. Class participation is always encouraged, and while he is very knowledgeable and could talk authoritatively for hours, he always listens to student input and questions. The hour and fifteen minutes flies by. No complaints, obviously.

You definitely can't get by in this class without doing any work. You should probably read all assigned material if you want a strong grade, because his exams will somehow include it all. There are three papers and two exams, so it's a significant course load, but I rarely if ever felt overwhelmed by it. Sometimes he had crazy last minute assignments, like having to go see a new movie on a week's notice. However, he's very reachable by email, and does a lot through Blackboard, so you can always find a way to work something out with him. It was generally difficult to improve your grade from one paper to the next, but otherwise, you get out of it what you put into it.
