    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a course that keeps you engaged with US policy both domestic and international. Professor Siena does an excellent job to make sure all the material is covered whether in the reading or in her lectures. She is always there to help as well. While the course is reading heavy, they help prepare you for the 200 point tests and make the lectures easier.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how policy actually works. About how different policies transform over time and how they affect the population as a whole. If it is an efficient policy or not can be seen through graphs and statistical explanations and how the mistakes can be avoided the next time.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest piece of advice is to do the readings. They help along with taking notes by hand. Since many of this needs to be replicated onto essays on the tests, it would be easier if instead of a laptop you were taking hand written notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was extremely inserting, it taught me different policies about our country nationally and internationally that I was unfamiliar with. Also, learning a ton of stuff on current events and knowing the importance of keeping up-to-date with what's going on around the country.

    Course highlights:

    The course continued to highlight current events happening internationally throughout the semester. Discussed homeland security, foreign policy, healthcare and equation policies, and the federal budget.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Great advice would be to always do the before and during class homework, quizzes, and teamwork assignments. When the professor dismisses the study guide, make sure you do it and review all notes and PowerPoints prior to tests. Also, it's extremely important to stay caught up with current events as their will be test questions regarding current events which are easy correct answers.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Karragac is a demanding yet encouraging instructor, using his deep knowledge of U.S. public affairs to provide students with a broad overview of domestic and international policy. SPEA-V 160 focuses on policy literacy, equipping first-year SPEA students to grasp concepts that are applicable across the field of public administration. The course covers a large amount of material, and requires a decent amount of weekly reading.

    Course highlights:

    Prof. Karragac presents matters of U.S. policy in a straightforward manner, and is willing to challenge assumptions made by both sides of the isle in describing the practical ramifications of various pieces of legislation. Personally, my knowledge of economic and international policy increased noticeably as a result of this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and come to class-Prof. Karragac is more than willing to help hard working students succeed, but has no sympathy for those who slack off.
