Tufts University: Shinju Fujihira - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Fujihira is a very intelligent man, but sometimes his lectures were incredibly boring, though at times he could also be very engaging. His voice is very loud and booming, and is in fact startling at first, but at least it keeps you from falling asleep (sometimes.) He is very kind, but sometimes he took too much time away from his lectures to answer questions from the class, questions it seemed like people were only asking to sound intelligent. His answers were usually always muddled and filled with "ums" or I don't knows. The class was always behind 1-2 lectures. If you like PS I'm sure the class would be appealing, but unless you really love the subject matter the class is nothing great. The TA is very nice but the recitations I found to be almost entirely pointless, they did not really help summarize the readings at all. Also the Professor doesn't seem to do any grading of essays at all himself, a little disappointing that he leaves it all to the somewhat befuddled T.A
Not an insane amount of work. There are usually 3-4 reading assignments a week, which are mostly long articles from journals, etc. Be careful not to fall too far behind in the reading, it can creep up on you, although you can BS your way through without some of it. There was a midterm that was pretty tough, one paper, and a final. He gives you the questions that will be on the test, so if you prepare (which is difficult and tedious) you can do well.
