Tufts University: Jeffrey Taliaferro - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Jeffrey Taliaferro | PS155 - US Foreign Policy| Political Science2005-08-09

Review:
What you?ve heard about prof Taliaferro is true. He is extremely bright, anal and well prepared for class. He does make some effort to get to know people (esp names), but the cons heavily outweigh the pros. He is extremely arrogant, pompous and condescending, especially towards the casual student. He is not very accepting of alternative interpretations to his "realist" point of view, and often belittles students in class who try to argue an opposite view point. Beware before enrolling in a Taliaferro class, if you are not an extremely serious student who is willing to read every page assigned, this class is NOT for you. Attendance is also required

Workload:
Reading was more than an average class, they were often confusing, extremely dense and boring. Unfortunately the student is forced to spend most of his/her time searching for the material which he thinks Prof Taliaferro wants to hear being regurgitated. The final paper is extremely confusing, it is not your standard history paper, and half the time is spent figuring out what needs to go where.

Final was bullshit, he threw a curveball on the essay (70%). The topic was something we spent 1/2 of the last class discussing, and not very in-depth either.
