This class was tough.
I would recommend student take this course because it helps political science students understand how to write a proper research paper, like the kind published in academic journals. Invaluable skills will be learned. Word of caution, do not procrastinate ever in this class, especially if you're not a prolific writer.
I learned how to analyze arguments, how to gather evidence, and how to think critically about issues about religion and how religion and or other political factors can motivate and deescalate conflicts.

Advice for students:
Never procrastinate. If you have a question, ask. Don't worry about the assigned reading so much, although some of it may help you write your essay.
