    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great course for learning about the history of this Country, our Country, and our government. You get to find out what really goes on behind the scenes, with the knowledge changing the way you see politics as a whole. Not only does it boost your sense of patriotism, but the course is a great experience to have, with a wonderful instructor, and compelling debates during your discussion sections.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the biggest highlights were finding out the duties of the President and how they have grown over time, and the tactical battles within Congress. The discussion section is a lot of fun at times, and the instructor was hilarious during his lectures. One of the most helpful things I learned in this class, especially with the 2016 election, is how the electoral college worked and how important the House and the Senate are, in combination with the President. When you understand the importance of winning key states, and how the electoral college operates, you understand more how Donald Trump, and George Washington strategically seized the Presidency.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Reading the textbook is very important, and is highly emphasized. It helps to take notes in class, and to keep in touch with your discussion leaders as to what to focus on during your study sessions. The extra credit is always a great way to strengthen your grade, and personally for me, it helped a lot to implement what you're learning in class within the extra assignments. Don't be afraid to ask questions, and definitely work on the given study guides, they can really mean the difference between passing an exam, and failing it. Read the questions of your exams very closely, and be as detailed as possible. And don’t forget to enjoy the class!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because I learned a lot about the American Government and how the decisions they make impact everyone. This class was especially interesting because it was an election year, so my Professor always made sure to include the current presidential debates during lecture. One thing I really enjoyed about this class, in regards to it being an election year, was that the Professor always allowed students to give their opinions on the candidates and what is happening currently in our political system.

    Course highlights:

    The results of the presidential election was a big highlight in this course for me, because of how the Professor handled the class after the results had been announced. He let those who wanted to speak freely about their fears of what is to come. I feel he also put everyone at ease when he was explaining that we are all going to be safe and that the world isn't going to end.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and take notes. Don't be afraid to ask questions in class or go to office hours, both are very helpful.
