    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class should be taken by every UO student and by Professor Galvan. At first I didn't know how I felt about this class nor the teacher. Galvan is very passionate about this topic and he will inspire you. The topic itself helps open ones eyes to different viewpoints.

    Course highlights:

    In this class you will learn about developing and developed nations and different views on how they did develop or how they will. It's quite an interesting topic.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings. I didn't at first and was really confused at what was going on. Also pay attention in class, although with Galvan's rants I don't think it'll be hard.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very good course, limited homework. The papers are challenging if you do not understand the content of the course and they are heavily weighted. The exam is also challenging and is not the type of exam you can study for the night before

    Course highlights:

    He is an amazing professor and really makes you think about the way countries develop. His lectures are entertaining and the content is thorough. The Misericordia project at the end is the biggest highlight

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings as much as possible and this will help tremendously. Also make sure to do the papers thoroughly and take really good notes in class. This will all come in to help towards the end of the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is highly recommended for International Studies majors or not! The ideas presented gave me a stronger global perspective. We went into the different developmental ideologies such as Classical Liberalism, Fascism and Communitarianism. This was all from an objective standpoint. We stepped out of our Western mindset at times to step into the shoes of others; trying to understand the sociopolitical and economic motivations for their decisions.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most interesting parts of the course was our final presentation. The whole (160+) person class participated in a simulated national conference for the fictional country of Misericordia. We tried to engage in diplomacy, but certain actors could not be reasoned with and it devolved into chaos. The point was we were able to directly engage with the concepts of the course in a tangible way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of readings assigned per week, but they are more for reference to back up themes and terms presented in lecture. There won't be pop quizzes to test whether you've read them or not. The teacher does not aim to hurt you or make you do busy work. Galvan wants students to learn and enjoy the course.
