    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend it because it does not solve any problems, but rather leaves it up to each individual to decide what is right vs. wrong.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of the different viewpoints in American politics and the arguments for and against many pertinent topics in today's culture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read the assigned reading and take notes. If you do not, it will be very hard to write the papers well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although the topics covered are interesting, the professor clearly exhibit a bias on their stance on these topics and it is often hard to get a great grade on something if your professor disagrees with your viewpoint. Much of this class is about deliberation and your TA will challenge your ideas and beliefs.

    Course highlights:

    I learned some interesting facts about various political issues in the United States. Because I found these topics interesting, I would read separate articles outside of class to dive in deeper with the topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you like politics and reading, you may enjoy this class. Specifically, if you like discussing politics and what you have read.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this class we studied the issues of inequality, education, and immigration. We explored and discussed these topics through readings and class discussion. While the class is very heavy on readings (some of which can be dull), I found the discussion sessions to be engaging. The plenaries were pretty basic and somewhat boring except for a few times when we heard from guest lecturers. Some of my classmates had trouble with the essays however I thought that it was graded fairly. It is a good class if you want to improve your writing.

    Course highlights:

    What I enjoyed most about the course were the discussion sessions. I was in the honors section so all of my peers were truly engaged in the conversation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings. While it can be easy to float through a discussion session from just a quick skim of an article or two, knowledge of some of the readings is necessary for a successful paper.
