He is very understanding and will help you out as long as you show that you are willing to work for the A. He gives a lot of chances to improve and will tell you straight up what he wants

SOSC 1510 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

Do not waste your money for this course! Two-hours lectures are reduced to just one hour of useless presentations and watching of documentaries often unrelated to the topic. Just easy money for the professor.

Amazing prof and favourite prof overall so far in university. Very generous, helpful and has a great sense of humour! Easy examinations along with easy marking while still learning considerably from this man.

I read goof reviews about this prof prior to taking his class and REGRETTED MY EYES OUT! Worst prof York has to offer, tough marker and takes so long to mark assignments and put up grades. I'm a hard working student and would never blame a teacher but he is definetly a learning lesson as to why i should look at the rating # not the comments! Avoid!

This course depended heavily on the textbook. If you do all your weekly readings and questions you should be good! Professor Langille overall values the students opinion on his lectures and is very nice and easy to talk to. I recommended this class to others and if I wasn't so crammed with my other classes I would've gotten an A instead of a B.

VERY nice teacher, very fun lessons. his tutorials are very fun and engaging but they really dont help you for the exam. His lectures tho you learn a lot. He loves to talk to you one on one and share funny stories. I really look forward in taking more courses with him my favorite prof so far!

He's very nice and lenient, but also very disorganized. As a Professor, he's a little lacking, but if you speak to him on and one-on-one basis for help, he's very helpful.

Professor Langille shows passion for the topic and you can tell he really know his stuff. If you have him as a tutorial teacher he's really nice but you won't get your marks on time. Overall I enjoyed the class and I recommend people to take it. Its easy and understandable.

easy course if you read the textbook and do the weekly questions (which are the exam questions). no need to attend lectures unless handing in assignments and tutorials are somewhat helpful. david is a slow marker if you have him as a TA, got my midterm exam back after i finished my final exam

Very good Prof . Go to class do the readings which aren't difficult and go to tutorial. Very easy to get an A since exams aren't worth more then 20% .

I am really surprised with the other reviews on here. The lectures were very clear and engaging. The information presented made me question my worldview and by the end of the course I had a completely different outlook on political issues. He also had a great sense of humour and I often found myself laughing uncontrollably during the lecture.

Do not take this class! I read some good review on here before taking his class and I regret it immensely. This teacher will spam your inbox with political jibber jabber, will give ambiguous outlines to class assignments, admits to major bell curving, and often literally refuses to give clarity on coarse information.

Disorganized, biased, and frequently dismissive of students who challenged him. One of the worst professors I've had.

UNI211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy, likeable enough, but totally disorganized and very biased. I signed up for a course in Canadian Health Policy, and what I got was a course on becoming a social activist for the NDPs with health care as the context. Further, he creates a hostile environment to those who do not share his opinions. Very disappointing and learned nothing.
