Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Jessica Preece is a truly inspirational woman; her dynamic personality creates a fun, engaging class atmosphere which greatly facilitates learning. The required weekly readings never feel like busy work; there is always a purpose to assignments. Overall, the course material is very interesting and is only made more interesting by Professor Preece.
The highlights of this course were how to identify concepts of political science in case studies from around the world. Now, whenever I read the news, I find myself thinking back to comments of Professor Preece's. Whether it be American election cycles, refugee crises in Europe, or the democratization of countries in Africa, any political event can be better understood and appreciated through POLI 150.

Advice for students:
Success is dependent on attending class and doing the required readings. An interest in politics is not mandatory, but extremely helpful.
