    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course involves a tremendous amount of reading!

    Course highlights:

    I did gain a lot of knowledge, but mostly because I have a friend that is a high school teacher tutoring me the whole semester.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read! Make sure you are staying up to date on your reading as well!

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it mostly because the professor was great. However, I have realized through taking this course the importance of being knowledgable about our government. The majority of students in that class were clueless about how the government functions and its history. We quickly became intrigued. In the end, my friends and I feel great about having taken the class and the material we learned.

    Course highlights:

    The topic that stuck with me the most was the electoral college. I had never heard of it previous to this semester, and I'm actually glad that this class gave me a chance to research it and write a paper explaining what it is, how it works, and forcing me to form an opinion on whether it needs to be reformed. I learned that most states have a "winner-takes-all" approach except for Maine and Nebraska, which follow a district system. The "winner-takes-all" method means that whichever candidates gets the most votes within a state gets ALL of that state's electoral votes. I also learned all about our countries founding documents and the philosophies that built up our nation into what it is now. Specifically, the difference between the ancient philosophers like Socrates and the modern philosophers like John Locke. They differed in the belief that people are born social and political(the ancient belief) rather than born in the "state of nature" from which mankind eventually forms political systems in order to maintain order and safety (modern belief). Towards the end of the semester we learned about the different economic schools of thought, their founders, and how they are applied in our economy today.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best thing you can do is to stay awake and take good notes. You could read the text book to get ahead or sleep through class, but both approaches will end up being extra work in the end. However, with good notes and in-class focus, you will be able to do very well in this class.
