Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Fascinating and informational look at world politics. Even if you aren't a political science major which I am not I highly recommend this course. Challenging yet rewarding and it really taught me a lot about that world that I wish I'd known before.
We discussed the influence of world politics on many issues including human trafficking, trade, environmental issues, war, and much more. It was incredibly interesting to come to understand how all these different issues intersected and how they were truly much more complex than they appeared on the surface. Professor horn is a very skilled lecturer, she invites conversation, is fascinating and respectful, and fully explains everything. I was never bored in her class.

Advice for students:
Do all the readings. They are kind of dense at times but they are essential. Prof horn will refer to them during lectures and have you answer questions on them specifically during quizzes and especially on exams. Focus on the readings when studying for tests. Know the names of authors who had major theories in their readings, especially those professor horn mentioned a few times in class. Speak up! Asking questions and contributing to class discussions is probably the best thing you can do for your grade. Even if it's just a clarifying question, ask it! Also don't be afraid to use office hours. Professor horn is fantastic and extremely intelligent but she can be a little intimidating at first. Be friendly and engaged and you won't have an issue.
