Tufts University: Consuelo Cruz - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Cruz was a really animated and interesting lecturer. I really appreciated how she attempted to learn the name of everyone in the class and how she ran the large lecture like she would a small seminar, encouraging lots of participation and discussion.
The subject matter was a little tedious; this class is mostly theory about different political systems rather than a focus on specific countries or regions, though Latin America comes up a lot.
Two plus block lectures a week and a mandatory recitation. 30% of your grade is participation, so speak up.
I ultimately dropped this class because I was taking 5.5 classes and the workload became too much. There's a ton of dense reading per class. Cruz's midterm and final are both take-home essays, running about 14-16 pages each. The midterm was assigned the week before Spring Break and due the week after.
