    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The intro to American Democracy was an Honors class- coming in as a freshman at Suffolk in 2014, I had already had an overview of the class with the government class that I took in senior year at Brighton High school. with this class, students were able to go in depth with how the American Democracy work- understanding what has and has not worked in the past and with current events. My knowledge of the American democracy was enhance so vastly that going into other government classes throughout my undergrad has been a bit easier when it comes to understanding the model of the American Democracy

    Course highlights:

    the highlights of this course were the readings and writing the weekly papers. the readings were always interesting and effectively allowed me, as a reader, to fully comprehend the context of the the dilemma presented and with the writings, incorporating then facts of the readings alongside with my thoughts and opinions allowed my voice to be heard and as well as my classmates

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    always do the readings because if you don't you will have no clue as to what is being talked about for next class whatsoever and always do the readings because that plays such a major role in getting your final grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is essential to laying the basic knowledge of the system of government in the United States. All Government students are required to take this as an introduction as a primer before moving onto higher level courses. While some of the content did repeat itself from U.S. History in high school, it provides more of an insight behind the importance of law and organization in government.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed this course the most because it challenged me to take a look around and see how bureaucracy was apparent in my everyday life. It influences the choices made while building my school, as well as how entire cities are run from a day to day basis. We often see government as just federal when in fact state and local governments are crucial to providing for the needs of people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise students to go into this course having an idea of what to expect. Any course dealing with history deals with a lot of content and the way this course was structured is to be more like a lecture. If you pay close attention to lectures and take it seriously, you will gain confidence moving forward.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Apart from the class being highly entertaining and communicative, Professor Conley is very open to students perspectives ideals and explain very modernly and comprehensive. This professor is also very attentive to his students and is available at almost any time.

    Course highlights:

    To me, the highlight of the class was the final project in which every student picked a controversial topic that involved todays modern politics and government. In my case the topic was about how the impact and importance behind voting has lost its meaning in today's youth.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is all about being caught up with modern day government and current events in order to provide innovative and new perspectives on today's media. The advice I would give to fellow Suffolk students would be to read the news and all the reading material provided by the professor. Also watch the news and pay close attention in class; other than that there is not much studying per se involved in the course if one takes plenty of notes in class
