    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course gave me a helpful introduction to the topics encompassed in the field of international relations, but it also gave me the opportunity to apply them.

    We had the opportunity to practice the topics from the class through an interactive simulation called StateCraft. This class also encompassed discussion of current events and other helpful application.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of your classmates and opportunities to work in groups. This class is designed to be relatively collaborative, so make sure you utilize that to the best of your ability.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class as it challenges your individual world view of how different nations relate to each other. Not only this, but it also helps to expand understanding of the systems that are in place and why they are so.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning through the use of Statecraft Simulations, working in groups of my peers and learning what it looks like to make decisions domestically when observing the rest of the world internationally. Learning to balance priorities such as relating to others well and taking care of your own needs and concerns, this can be applied to all of life, not just international politics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open. Be willing to adjust your thinking, and as such, don't hold too tightly to your own presuppositions that you miss the insights and perspectives of others.
