    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Covers many aspects of comparative politics, and offers a beneficial introduction if you want to continue studying this subject.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all about different political regimes and why they come into power. We spent a lot of time looking at democracy and authoritarianism in the Middle East, Russia, East Asia, and Latin America, which I found very interesting. We examined the mechanisms of government and what determines the regime.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the materials. There are reading quizzes each week in lecture that can be easy points if you have done the readings. The readings are interesting and thorough, and offer many different viewpoints, so spend time doing them. The exams are also based on the readings and require extensive knowledge of the readings.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The subject itself is interesting as it examines the various systems we use to govern ourselves and the professor focusses on how different combinations of these institutions work in different countries and how the populace has a role within bringing about reform and also how the state can crack down on rebellion.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the intricate and complicated systems that are the foundations of democracy and authoritarianism, as well as how the economy has a critical role in social and political issues. Comparative Politics is the the study of different countries and how each one has a set of institutions that then help create various levels of democracies, authoritarian regimes, and failed states. After studying these comparisons, one then can make their own judgements on what kind of institutions may work for a certain type of citizenry; though one must also keep in mind the historical and social contexts of each country they analyze and also consider the patterns of civil society's actions and goals.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with readings and make sure to do IDs relatively early, I'd say make flash cards as soon as she announces them instead of throwing together false cards a couple of days before the midterms (at the end of the semester you will need these flashcards for the final).

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Fish is really good at condensing all topic material into understandable ideas that translate very easily to the test.

    Course highlights:

    I was never surprised during tests, also he had really cool guest speakers that summarized parts of the course he wouldn't.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read everything and show up to every class to take notes and see guest lectures so that the tests and quizzes are easy.
