Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I highly recommend this course to all students. Through interactive lectures and a crisis simulation, the course provides an appreciation of the challenges as well as the promise of working in national security.
The major highlights were guest lecturers, such as the former President of Estonia, Secretary Rice, and Secretary Perry. The crisis simulation is also a wonderful opportunity to understand what it means to be a policymaker under pressure.

Advice for students:
Make sure to do all of the readings so that you may be well-equipped to answer the midterm and final paper prompts. The simulation will also require a considerable amount of preparation time beforehand.
