    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course. I think anyone who enjoys understanding the basic reason for why things aren't as simple as they may sound, they'd like this course a lot. you learn how to manage details and apply them in a way thats fun and innovative. Show up and have fun!

    Course highlights:

    This course was taken at a time when election was really gaining traction and always in the news. The election thus was integrated into class lectures, discussion, debate group assignment, and papers. That may sound like a lot but it was well worth it and I learned more about politics than I would expect from an intro course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The work was still kept at a level that was consistent and expectations were clear. One thing learnt, little knowledge is dangerous. To get things done, you must understand that others understand and perceive things differently than others. Do not let prejudice dictate your thinking or you will have trouble keeping up.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was fantastic. I learned a lot about modern politics and the structure of the government. Although I already knew a lot about goverment history and process, the course really built upon existing information.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the Justic System, the Executive Branch, and Congress. The course was taken during the 2016 presidential election and therefore there was a large focus on current events. In addition to the information on the government, political theory came up many times as well which helped contribute to developong independent beliefs about certain issues facing Americans.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The largest piece advice I would give is to read the constitution and study the terms throughout the course. Also, study up on current events and stay informed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Intro to American Government was a blast with Dr. Shrader. If you're searching for an involved, knowledgable, and excited political scientist, he's your guy. Not to mention the fun and innovative assignments, including a Presidential Candidate draft/presentation, as well as the variety of local political speakers coming to class, this class marked off all the boxes when it came to being incredible!

    Course highlights:

    I had the opportunity to present a report on Dr. Rand Paul, and I really enjoyed researching, writing, and presenting to my classmates. Another great moment in the semester was when Dr. Shrader invited the leaders of each major political party in our state to class (Libertarian, Democrat, and Republican) for a friendly debate and forum. It was the first time in our state's history that all three were in the same place at the same time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you bring a pen and paper, and cozy up to the professor. He's a great resource outside the classroom, and he is always willing to correspond and meet with you. In addition, the reading material is nothing you can't handle, so give it a go and see what you can learn!
