    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Sanasarian is very passionate about comparative politics and it is very interesting and engaging to listen to her lecture. However, the class starts off fun and you may think it is easy but as you integrate more and more countries and their politics into the lesson the material may be overwhelming as there is so much material you will be required to memorize.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the politics of the countries learned in the class that I had no prior knowledge of before. It was a bit difficult memorizing the heads of each statement and the names of the political institutions as there were so many countries that we were required to have in depth knowledge about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read each and every chapter and go to each lecture and discussion section and make sure to take notes. Professor Sanasarian's lectures and discussions are often more helpful than the actual book. Keep studying each chapter as each and every information counts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are interested in comparing the governmental systems and fundamental ideals of various countires.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was actually learning about Gandhi's contributions to India and their independence movement, because I had very minimal knowledge of his contributions beforehand.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise going to the professor's office hours if you ever need clarification on anything, because their are no lecture slides so you have to study based on your own notes and if you do not take thorough notes or miss something the professor says it is easy to get confused.
