    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very interesting course, the professor is engaging and would like for you to participate in class. Not the most demanding course through out the semester, but the final project will make up for that.

    Course highlights:

    Any time the professor broke his non partisan teaching and talked about contemporary topics was always a treat. Didn't happen often but it kept the lesson fresh and interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't buy the book, but keep notes close and readable. Participate in class and let him know you are listening and active. Visit his office if you have any concerns.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Lopez-Levy expects you to interact with the lecture and challenges you to participate in real life political movements. Great professor and great insights.

    Course highlights:

    Getting to take the course with the election on hand was fantastic, very contemporary and interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The book won't be completely necessary, but it helps to use when participating in class discussion. Not many assignments so you won't be swamped, but the final project will take effort. Do your best, and if you have any concerns, his office door is welcoming and open.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would not truly recommend this course because the Political Engagement assignment my professor used did not grasp a true engagement. If you do not get enough points your grade will suffer (it is only 10% though, this is really for the people who want in A in the course) and this should count as extra credit because engagement is going to the next level in learning and that should deserve extra credit, not a separate segment of grading on the syllabus. There were some good things in the P.E. section such as watching debates, but that can be uncomfortable for a person who thinks Political Science is a touchy subject. It is like forced engagement. It is more of an ethics thing. The way how this Professor represents his lectures sounds a little biased. He admits what he thinks on certain issues which kind of lead us to think what side he truly is on. He claims to be unbiased, however he is not that convincing. He does talk about both sides but emphasizes one side more than the other and it would be a surprise if most people do not see it. It gets a little annoying. Two more things that should be said about that. Nobody asked for the opinion and it should be kept to themselves.

    Course highlights:

    I do think one of the highlights of this course was that he makes the tests and quizzes online as well opened-note and book. This makes it easier for the teacher because he has less stuff to grade compared the old-fashioned way; which takes a very long time and the students could get a very good grade with little effort. This helps for students who have a ton of stuff to do such as jobs, family and heavy course loads. I do like that this professor does not require the book. Most of the stuff is online and it makes the book pointless. That is honesty. I learned that Liberals and Conservatives do not disagree with LITERALLY everything. An example is that both sides will support the military for the needed cause. At least this is what I remember.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you say a very subjective statement, make sure you have the facts to back it up. Be objective, open-minded and careful. Try to keep your opinion to yourself because the chances of the majority agreeing with you is low. Try to find time for the P.E. assignments, if you do not try compensating for getting a better grade on a test and quiz and stuff.
