    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    this professor is young and inexperienced, which means he's still idealistic and it shows. the class is about the politics of disobedience, and unpacks the ways that we can be ethical in our disobedience of authority. it's important to have a philosophical basis to your political views rather than just a set of opinions. this class is a great way to start working on this

    reading works by authors like malcolm x, gandhi, mlk jr., john locke, martin luther, emma goldman, and more was informational and highly enjoyable

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was interesting because we took an in depth look at several pieces of political literature from different time periods. Staring thousands of years ago and ending at the current date, this class allowed me to see how political arguments have built off each other and used each other over time.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was when we watched an interesting documentary about Vietnam and read about some of the letters written by peace protestors at the time. This allowed us to really see what the political climate that existed when some of the texts were written.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to keep up on the readings and allow yourself plenty of prep time on the essays. They are graded rather harshly, therefore if your arguments are not pristine, you may not earn the grade that you desire.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Nichols is fantastic professor. He challenges his students to think independently. He facilitates great class discussion. I would take a class just to have him as a professor again.

    Course highlights:

    I would have to say that the highlight was when Nichols brought in students who had been arrested for protesting to come and talk with us about civil disobedience. I feel that my understanding of political change have been deepened.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the reading. Really take notes on what Nichols says after or before the class discussion, it will help you on the final paper. Also go in and talk to Nichols about the first paper of your not confident. It is very hard to get points back in the course.
