    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Thomas is the best professor I've had so far.

    Course highlights:

    I'm half way through the course and I've learned more about empirical measures than I did in an entire year of high school.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text book and supplemental readings.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course take a lot of work, but you'll survive. Make sure you actually try to listen to his lectures or you will feel totally lost.

    Course highlights:

    It was more of like an independent study. Make sure to make a study group or you won't want to complete the work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to research. Don't think you're smarter than the professor, at least not out loud.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is required to graduate for Political Science, so you have to take it. I'll warn you now, it's a boring class. Yet, it's essential to learning how to do political science research, so make the best of it.

    Course highlights:

    This course is fundamental in learning how to conduct research and do calculations for political science. The class is really boring, especially when it's only offered at 8 am, but the material is easy. The math involves plug and chug equations and the numbers are given to you. The other information is really simple to understand and remember. So, it shouldn't be too hard of a class. You also have to do a project using a poly-sci research software that can be difficult to understand, at first. Once you get a hang of the software, though, it becomes easy to do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you ask questions in class. Go to class because attendance is a part of your grade and you get extra points to your total grade the less amount of classes you make. Try to work on the project everyday to get a grasp on it.
