    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course helped me realize the way the government thinks when coming to agreements on policy making and accepting.

    Course highlights:

    The Athenian Oath was something that I learned from this course that I highly recommend people follow.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook, make an outline; this method is super useful and would help when completing the modules.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor is an amazing professor and although his methods may seem eccentric they are methods that teach you about material in the class, which is relatively simple, and about yourself as a citizen.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the team competitions that took place which related back to the packets that you were working on within the class, and the review that would take place to help even more with the packets. Another highlight of the class was the guest speakers that would come in a present and each of the speakers would talk about how they took the lessons from the class and actually apply it to the world as students always questions when will we use this. I learned about the steps to take to solve a societal problem through finding the problem, analyzing it, developing a policy to help it, and steps to implement that policy. I also learned what it takes to be a good citizen in society.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Time management is key. There are a total of 5 major packets without the course and if done at the last minute can be a lot of work and can be done wrong. Participation is another important aspect in the class as it will eventually help you.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course if you want to learn how to understand systems and institutions, and gain valuable skills in the process as well. I would not recommend this course if you are not open to being detail oriented or focused on precision.

    Course highlights:

    - practical skills -policy application - Excel graphical representation - system analysis - problem design and analysis

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be detail oriented, don't miss deadlines, and most of all stay focused on using the TAs to your benefit.
