    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class covers from basic theories of International Relations to causes of Iraq wars and emergence of International Organizations. It provides students with a variety of knowledge associated with broad concepts of international politics and also helps us understand how to apply them to real circumstances such as the cause of ISIS emergence, a tedious relationship between China and the U.S.

    Course highlights:

    I have been able to gain a lot from this course, fortunately. One of the best contents of the course is definitely a simulation of prisoner's dilemma. We get into 4 groups and decide whether we defect or cooperate with other groups each round. Whoever gets the most points wins as a group. It helps us to understand the core principles of realism and how realists view cooperation as a nonideal solution to the global issues.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the readings thoroughly and try to read in depth. It is absolutely essential to understand what the professor is explaining, and it certainly benefits you especially when you are studying for the exams or writing a paper. Also, going to the office hours help a lot since he spends a lot of time trying to make you fully understand and makes sure that you do not have any unclear thoughts about the materials we covered in the class.
