Pretty easy, overall.
If you deeply interested in the Political science field this may be a little boring for you. I believe it was designed with the idea that since it is a required course for most majors that most of the students would not want to spend a lot of time studying it. So, if you want challenging then I would not recommend this class.
Taking POLS 2302 I actually learned much more about politics than I originally thought I would. It was an extremely easy course but that is because the teacher provided us with excellent study material and let the class participate in a lively dialogue about the material. I found that with her peaking our personal interests by getting us involved helped the class's overall grade in the end. From this class I learned about social behaviors (from observing the students) and social policy (from the teacher)

Advice for students:
If it is a required course I recommend taking it because it was refreshingly easy. I loved not having to worry about 1 of my 5 classes and still looking at a shinny new A at the end of the semester for nearly no effort. Be nice to the teacher she is working hard for it to be easy on us.
