    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class, taken as a freshmen, was instrumental in the transition from high school to college. It helped me to develop healthy studying habits, and techniques for how to critically read and analyze work. Aside from the material itself being very useful for understanding our country and how it runs, the applications from this class that emerge from personal dedication to preparation for the class are very beneficial for your academic life.

    Course highlights:

    This course covered how the United States of America interacts with the rest of the globe, and how it internally functions. The course analyzed how elites and the masses interact in our society to create, promote, and run public policy, as well as subjects regarding national security and defense, international diplomacy, aid for the poor, education policy, environmental policy, crime and the criminal justice system, and other details of how the government operates within both the public and private sector.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, it is necessary to do the readings before class. The class is, rather than a lecture, a discussion based class that analyzes and interprets the concepts from the reading. This class is very engaging and interactive, and the professor relates the material to the modern concepts and issues facing our society. I would highly recommend taking detailed notes over the readings so that you are prepared during the class, as well as notes of the things he covers in class. When time for the exam, all of your notes combined should make the perfect study guide to go over.
