Tufts University: Consuelo Cruz - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Consuelo Cruz | PS021 - Intro to Comparative Politics| Political Science2004-04-13

Professor Cruz is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable professor. She lectures well and encourages class involvement even though the PS21 lecture has about 100 students in it. She's kind and is very concerned with students' understanding and class involvement. The only problem I found was that she was disorganized at times and jumped from one topic to another which made things confusing.

The course itself, however, can tend to be quite boring. This class is generally a theoretical class that compares various governments to one another. What bothered me the most about this class is that we would only spend 1-2 classes per country, which could make things quite complicated and dense. A lot of information was thrown out at once and the course booklet had some very heavy (and in some cases useless) readings. The textbook, on the otherhand was much more useful and contained information that connected well to the lectures.

This course generally contains a lot of reading which cannot be done quickly. It can be insanely dense at times and I didn't always find a correlation with the lecture. There were two papers, one midterm (14-16 pages) and a final (both were take home exams). I ended up dropping this course because of the heavy workload and the fact that it didn't interest me at all. Going more in-depth may have held my interest a little more.
