Comment:
Neil is still teaching a graduate course that has a syllabus rarely including works in the 2000s. Old-fashioned method teaching, old texts, nothing more than King/Keohane/Verba. Besides a soul-sucking research methods course, he is an incredibly disrespectful and sarcastic individual whom especially international students should escape from.

Lectures can wander a little, but the content is good and hes decently engaging. The concepts I learned in this class were some of the most interesting in my undergrad. The exam is pretty reflective of what he mentions in lecture, so take notes. As long as you work hard on the paper and go to class youll get a good mark.

Comment:
Professor Nevitte's class was my favourite during my time as an undergrad. I learnt so much and actually had the opportunity to reflect on what I learnt during lectures. He prompted me to learn more and expand my knowledge. He is also quite approachable and is interested in seeing his students grow. I would definitely recommend the course!

I am happy that the previous writer on this list has received help from him. However, this is far from the truth, and if the new students will come in his classroom with that mindset they are in for a rude awakening. Just do not take his class, and you'll make yourself a favour.

Comment:
Neil Nevitte ran the most difficult course I took in four years of university. Years later, however it is the only class in which I still retain much of the material covered. He committed the offense of expecting students to think.
