Tufts University: Matthew Gregory - Sociology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Matthew Gregory | SOC001 - Introduction to Sociology| Sociology2005-01-15

Professor Gregory is certainly one of the worst professors I have ever had. He NEVER connects his lectures to the readings and rarely introduces main sociological concepts. His lecturers generally consist of short stories that are a waste of time. In fact, it isn't even worth attending his class. In addition, he is hard to contact and reach out of class. Also, when we wanted to skip his class to go to the Issaam Fares lecture with Hillary Clinton, he said that we could, but we had to write a 1 page paper about it...what is this high school?
I must comment, however, that the recitations were interesting and useful. The TA was excellent.

There is a good amount of reading for this course if you choose to do it. The textbook reading is like any other textbook reading that you have done. Then there are a couple other supplemental books, one more geared towards consumerism and economics and one called "Limbo" that I found quite interesting.
There is 1 test early in the course which is 60% multiple choice and 40% essays. The multiple choice questions are annoying because if you didn't read every word of the textbook, you could easily miss out. Then midway through, there is a 10 page paper on basically anything you want (not bad). And then a final project which is a "scavenger hunt" paper (mine was 19 pages).
Definitely not a heavy workload.
