This class was tough.
Although it says no required knowledge of subject beforehand, it is difficult to grasp concepts and cases without any knowledge. Still a doable class, most all end up with A's, B's and C's.
It was a very useful class, learning about current events, sharing opinions on said current events and discussing them. The class was strange though. The professor would only lecture on about a third of the classes, and the rest of the learning was through teaching and reading groups. There would be assigned reading groups, then one person from each reading group would go to their separate teaching groups and would share the reading to the mixed group. This made it a bit disorganized as the tests could cover things that possibly weren't covered well by a group member, etc.

Advice for students:
There is a lot of memorizing and reading that has to be done for this class. But if you want to learn more about real world issues, this is the class to take. There is no sugar coating here.
