    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher expects you to do a lot of reading outside of class and if you don't you won't understand a thing he teaches. If you can't answer his questions on the reading, then he won't teach you. Plus, the book he teaches from is written by himself, so you get a very biased point of view on the subject and don't get a wide understanding, not to mention the fact that his jokes get tedious and what you read ends up being exactly what you hear in class the next day. On the other hand, if you do the reading, its not hard to get a high B or A in the class - but don't kid yourself on getting that A+ because his tests are not that easy.

    Course highlights:

    Griffith makes sure to go through every section of his book, so you learn about every branch of government, the most important sections of the constitution, and why our government was built the way it was. The "why" part is a bit extensive in my opinion, but was rather interesting at the same time and made me appreciate our government a bit more. Oh and there is no actual homework which is great, but you have to do the readings and take notes if yo want to succeed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Read. READ. Ask questions in class. The easiest way to become one of his favorites is to answer his questions in class and laugh at his jokes. As long as you do that, you can pass. Oh, and make sure you read the material before class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Vaughn is such an amazing professor and person in generally. He wants to see every single one of his students succeed in the class, and gives out numerous extra credit opportunities before an exam to give you a bit of an "extra incentive" to actually complete the reading(s) given. He does not force his own political opinions or beliefs on anyone, but he truly does encourage students to speak their mind(s) in order to discuss certain topics and ideas with others.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely the discussions. At first, no one wants to speak, but then most of us become more opinionated and thoughtful throughout the course of the class period.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you complete the readings and study for exams, you will do fine. Be sure to take notes during lectures!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because you will really learn so much from this course. It is challenging but also manageable. If you just want the easy way out I would not recommend it, but if you want to challenge yourself a little it will be great.

    Course highlights:

    I gained so much knowledge about the American government from this course. I learned how to plan out my readings more, and I learned how to create a better study plan. I feel like you will get learn a lot from this course and it will be challenging but worth it at the end.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you keep up with the readings, and if you are not up for working hard this course is not for you.
