Tufts University: Paul Joseph - Sociology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Paul Joseph | PJS120 - Sociology of War and Peace| Sociology2005-01-15

This is an amazing class simply because Professor Joseph loves this subject. The class is very interactive and he wants people to voice their opinions and will often sit back while students present opposing views. There is always material to talk about, and as long as the US is at war right now, it makes each class relevant. The syllabus of lectures is not always followed, so expect some discussions to continue over multiple classes. He is very open to others ideas and the best way for you to get noticed is to speak up once in a while. Don't try to dominate discussions, but speak when you feel inclined. Not very hard class, take home midterm and final. Put the effort in and you will do well. Do all the work, and you will be rewarded. One of the more interesting classes at Tufts.

He assigns a lot of reading, although the discussions aren't always about the reading. He'll tell you when he expects the reading done. 2 assignments, a take home midterm and an in class or take home final, 10-12 pages for take home exams. Midterm is a photo-essay (I did this) or a reading based writing assignment. Final is take home, 2 5-6 page assignments based on readings. In class final is the same thing, but you prepare for 3 questions and he gives you two. When doing the assignments/taking the exams, demonstrate your knowledge of the reading. That's all that interests him. The more authors/material you bring in, the better your grade will be.
