    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For a lot of people, political science is a bore. I would recommend this class because Professor Stephens teaches all that you need to know, while making it easy to follow and actually rather interesting. She was good about giving you the information you need for tests, but not so easy on you that you could skip class all the time and still pass. She was a good professor who really knows what she's talking about and kept an unbiased approach on everything regardless of how polarized politics is today.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed that it was lecture based. You are required to read (like most courses) and that information does show up on the test, but a lot of things mentioned in discussions also show up on tests. I'm a heavy note taker so this was good for me! Another highlight would be the comic relief she put into lectures and discussions. There was never any tension. The only assignments we had were four tests that she fully prepared you for if you pay attention in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She uploaded sheets to D2L that allow you to follow along with her lecture and take notes. If you have difficulty taking notes, utilize that option. Though, I didn't use it and made a 97 in the class. As long as you take notes of the lecture and study the reviews she gives out, you'll do great! This isn't a blowoff class, but it is relatively easy if you put the effort in.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Galatas is an amazing professor! He likes to give lots of stories and fun facts about government to help understand difficult concepts. Sometimes he just tells stories so you can catch up on the notes he wrote on the board. He is very helpful and made all of the concepts easy to understand!

    Course highlights:

    We went over how voting works....so things like why people do and do not vote, privacy rights, and Roe v.Wade.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take really good notes and study them ahead of time and you should be fine. If you go to SI sessions it would significantly help you get an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for those of you who like in depth conversations over political situations in the present and if you're really good at memorizing/studying a lot of information.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about all the policies in the United States from past to present. This class helped me understand our government and how the policies work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest you take thorough notes so you can study those for the test. Everything on the test is in your notes. I also suggest you attend the tutoring sessions because they go over what is going to be on the test.
