    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Togman is not only very excited about this topic, but he conveys what seems like very dense information in a digestible way. He is very open to hearing from his students and encourages discussion among the class (unusual for a large seminar class). He is also most concerned with whether you understood and can discuss the material. As such, his tests are purely about the material; if you study you will get an A, it is one of those classes that is truly that simple.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about the very common parlance of international relations. Things like Liberalism, Realism, Neo-Conservatism, are all ideologies and frameworks that people use in discussions about U.S. Foreign Policy, so I would say the course gives a good practical understanding. He also wants you to apply theory though, which I thought was a great part of the class. A lot of the second half of the class(after the midterm) concerns reading news articles and coming ready to discuss them and apply them to the theories you have learned.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the readings and take notes in class, also be interested in what you are learning. He presents a lot of material in an excellent way, but if you don't care for it, it will take a long time to understand it all.
