Pretty easy, overall.
This course was more than a few general education requirements; so much was learned in such a short period of time. Students were not given a strenuous course load, and instead participated in interesting classroom conversations that encouraged them to retain the information. The professor made a class of over two hundred feel like an intimate, small learning space, attempting to know all his students by name.
There are only three graded assignments in this course; a midterm, a final, and a research paper. Almost all of the information is applicable and easy to learn if you attend the lectures and the class discussion sections. The professor keeps his students up to date on religious-political current events. He teaches his students how to gather data and analyze it from a political lens. Not only is the content of this course applicable, but the educational skills taught will last a lifetime.

Advice for students:
Attend all of the classes, even if you are not taking notes. Listen to what the professor has to say and engage in discussion; this is how you learn. Also, do not wait until the last minute for the final paper! Choose a topic that you find extremely interesting, a topic that you will want to research and discover!
