    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Lundin is awesome! He really pushes you to learn to material and cares about his students. His teaching styles and passion makes the class very enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the highlights were the group debates. I became close with my debate team and we bonded. We didn't know what side of the topic we were to debate so we had to be prepared for both arguments which really helped to learn the concepts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Professor does give pop quizzes based on the chapter readings. They're not too difficult but reading the chapters helps the class greatly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was the single most challenging and interesting perspective to take on Texas Government. I took this course at an honors level, and thoroughly enjoyed the lecture series. My professor not only encouraged students to engage in debates surrounding course materials; she brought me out of the shadows and inspired me to become politically involved.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Fiona Ross was by far one of the most intelligent and vigorous women I have ever met. She allowed my peers and I to work with a local Voting Awareness Council in order to develop a job description for the sole purpose of improving their social media campaign effort. Additionally, my professor selected me to introduced House Representatives Mark Keough and Cecil Bell Jr. at a local civic engagement event. The most important lesson i took away from the class was that hands-on experience proved to be the most effective way of learning.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend this course because it was honestly a life-changing experience for me. Professor Ross is an incredible women driven by a passion to enrich the lives of students by exposing them to the raw encounters of government. With that being said, the course itself was extremely difficult. There were numerous lengthy papers, dozens of quizzes, and countless hours of reading involved. In my opinion, the take-away from the class was well worth the struggle.
