Pretty easy, overall.
Buckle up! This course is designed to be all over the place. However, it is fascinating and the presenters are true experts in their respective trades. You will get a lot out of this class, there is no homework save for the midterm and final, and you will come out actually smarter and more educated. How often can you say that about a college course?
Everything. Toilet crisis in India. War in Syria. Happiness in Denmark. Conflict in the South China Sea. The cult of Chavez in Venezuela. This class will teach you many things about the world in which you live.

Advice for students:
Take decent notes in class. It's hard to remember a lecture 7 weeks ago for a test (short answer, not multiple choice).
