Tufts University: Susan Ostrander - Sociology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Susan Ostrander | SOC130 - Class, Race & Gender Inequality| Sociology2004-05-05

I would never take a class with her again. She displayed a fair amount of concern with her students' progress, but was opinionated, and one of the few professors at Tufts I've encountered who appeared to have a total disregard for views other than their own. She never hesitated to remind the students how intelligent she is, or to pass around a book that had her name in it somewhere. She could definitely stand to be more patient (she admitted this herself), and her idea of 'explaining' something is to repeat the idea/word/etc. over again.

She basically treats you like it's the only class you're taking (which is rarely the case). Very demanding workload, though the material is really interesting, and definitely worth taking the class for.
