    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Colbert is a wonderful educator, and expresses on a daily basis his admirable knowledge and passion for PSC: American Politics(along with other courses). He meets each student half way with requirements, expectations, and assistance. It sort of amounts to, "if you fail his course, it was in no way HIS fault." He opens your door to successfully passing his class, and it's ultimately up to each student if they walk through, study, and complete assignments as needed to pass his class. I admit he grades tough, but its based off of his exact lectures and information that you're required to memorize at your best. I would.'t have chosen this class with any other professor.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a more vigilant and open mind when it comes to politics as a whole. Biggest benefit in this course were his study guides, as his exams were the twin to the guides. If you didn't take good notes or study, you were doomed. As long as you pay attention, participate, and study you will do great.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen intensively. He's specific with his lecture notes, and from the notes helps you study with the study guides. Raise your hand to answer questions, and let him know you're engaged. Restroom breaks before class begins! Always arrive early! I sat in the front, but to ensure you get your desired seat arrive promptly. Communicate with him any questions or concerns you may have, during office hours or email. He will never let you down!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. As a young individual who is receiving a higher education and going out into the real world it is in said individuals best interest to learn about the foundation of our country. This course not only helps students brush up on knowledge already gained in previous years but also expands ones knowledge on the country that they live in.

    Course highlights:

    Personally, I think the highlights of this course were exploring new and exiting bills in congress, as well as researching the foundation of our country. I learned the process in which a bill becomes a law as well as how bureaucracy works.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, students absolutely need to study material and do the readings. Above all else a student needs to engage in the course, that is the most important thing. A majority of the material we learned did not come from a book or a website, our breakthroughs were made by talking to each other and communicating with the professor.
