    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class, even though it kicked my butt. The reading load was quite heavy, and pop quizzes are a regular thing, but the lessons I came away with after taking this class are of very high value to me. I loved this class, and if one is willing to work hard, read a lot, and study diligently, they will come away with a greater understanding of the science of politics and how it works.

    Course highlights:

    It was amazing to take this course during the 2016 Presidential Election. It made the course feel more applicable and relevant. The best part of this course was the lectures. Dr. Brown is incredible and he really knows the subject. He's enthusiasm and love for politics is contagious, and I walked away with a greater desire to stay updated with current political events.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to students considering this course would be to STAY ON TOP OF THE READING! Don't get behind in the reading, because once you do, it's hard to catch up. Reading is also essential if you want to do well in the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is nice, however I did not like this class one bit. He was always behind in the lectures, which were all quite boring and didn't usually add to anything if you did the reading.

    Course highlights:

    How a bill becomes a law, basics of the american government, checks and balances, campaigning for offices in congress and the president, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading. You don't need to go to class if you read the chapters. Making flashcards with concepts and vocabulary helps with studying.
