    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! It was online for me, which worked well with my summer vacation/occupational schedule. Professor Massey was very good with feedback, and I thoroughly enjoyed the core and supplemental subject matter.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Massey had us read The Prince by Machiavelli. I felt like this really had us apply the principles we were learning about in a past context. It was really interesting seeing the contrasts between present political thought and the ideals prevalent in Renaissance Italy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook and the supplemental. If you do some morally questionable things (like, I don't know, cheat or something), you're missing out on the relevant information this class offers. I happened to visit DC after taking this course, and I truly felt as if everything I learned was completely applicable.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is a graduation requirement in most public colleges, regardless of major, so you will have to take this course eventually. I took this course dual credit, which was set at a slower pace and is overall easier than if you were to take it at a 4-year university. Moreover, as federal government is considered a core class, it is very likely to have a very large class size. Finally, dual credit is more cost efficient than taking it a 4-year university. You get the same amount of credits and fulfil the graduation requirement for a fraction of the price. Taking a class while it's easier, cheaper, and less intimidating is a smart move.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me the basics of the American federal government. It taught me the makeup of the federal government, how the government operates, how the government has evolved over the years since the founding of the colonies. This course also taught me the basics about politics as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    A lot of helpful information on this course is listed in the constitution. If you read the all the articles of the constitution you would have gone through material that would normally take an hour if you read the same exact information from the textbook. Also, there is a difference between memorizing a term and fully understanding a term. To ensure you understand a term, make sure you're able to apply the term in different scenarios, the tests given in this class will do this. Also make sure you read very carefully, there are a lot of little detail s that will help you understand terms and a lot of small details are tested. Finally, do not procrastinate and make sure you read all the material your professor gives you. Make sure to spread the reading out a couple of days to ensure careful reading. There is a lot of reading in this class and it will be extremely difficult and time-consuming to read all the chapters before a test or quiz.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this professor because he help me expand my political views because it inspire me to research other political parties and how they view the issues compare to my political party beliefs.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that from the beginning of the course he said that this class was a Socratic type of class meaning that we will talked a lot about politics and we did have homework sometimes but the main part was discussions and he even confessed the political party he is in favor of but said there would not be any bias from his part.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice any future students that for this course, you do not want to be late to this class because he would put you on the spotlight and as well do not miss class because participation is very important and one last thing, if you are going into this class you have to educate yourself in politics and current events because those are the main points that will be discuss in class.
