Do not take his Class he is completely unhelpful during lectures and gives you 5 days to write 6 page papers with about 10 hours of research behind it. The TA’s give no assistance in helping you understand the lectures and this class will just make you stressed.

POLISCI 171 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Completely disorganized professor, directions for midterm essay were no help what so ever. My TA, a female, was on a constant power trip the entire semester and provided little help with assignments. The lecture notes only help because they provide you with the specific quotes in readings which show you what's most important in the readings.

Polisci171 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class is the most disorganized course you will take at Umass. His slides are a bunch of quotes and he doesn't title them. Attendance is taken and he makes the class mandatory. He is very confusing and hard to understand as well. This class really goes nowhere. Don't take this class if you don't have to you'll just regret it

PoliSci 171 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This professor is awful. He is very difficult to understand and he is incredibly boring in class. The class is so disorganized which is not helpful at all trying to keep everything together all semester. Don't take a class with this guy.

POLISCI 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The Professor is good at what he does, but it's extremely hard to understand him with his accent. His slides aren't very detailed and are not posted online. The best way to pass this class is to do your readings and pay attention in discussions. Your TA is your best friend.

PoliSci203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

For an intro level theory class, this class was ridiculous. He talks in circles and barely addresses a point. Did I learn anything about American Political Thought? No. Did I learn a lot about the federalist/anti federalist? Yes. Is anything I learned in this class applicable? NO! Don't take this class. Don't take this class. Don't take this class

POLISCI 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hard to understand between accent and pacing. WAY too much reading assigned for a ged-ed. Also, mandatory attendance, but poor check-in system.

This class is perhaps the most intriguing class I have ever taken. Sure the course was difficult, but nothing should be too easy to learn. His confident enthusiasm strikes a pivotal chord within me that is essential for any speaker to have in order to peak interest. Everything I have learned will be vital to the overall sythesis of who I am to be.

polipol Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A teacher whose quality cannot be judged independently of the complex subject matter taught. Political philosophy - by nature critical, challenging and normative - asks as much of the student as the teacher. In such cases the best a teacher can do, is ask you to bring the best of yourself - liberal and supportive Dr Alejandro is a true maestro

pol1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I'm a polisci major and even though i got an A in the class it had very little to do with the professor. His lectures are disorganized. I literally could only understand 1 out of every 10 words he said. I had a great TA who explained everything at Discussion. Be sure to sit near the front to try to understand him if you do take a class with him.
