    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class as it is challenges thinking abilities but it is incredibly rewarding by enabling students to expand their critical thinking skills to help them in future classes as well as evaluate other multifaceted topics.

    Course highlights:

    This was a class that would stretch your thinking skills and cause you to evaluate all arguments made by a paper, a professor and so on. This class made me realize that poverty and inequality are not easy problems and because of this there are no easy solutions. It also made me realize that investigating an issue completely is nearly impossible, however every bit of information helps to enable a greater understanding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do as much of the reading as possible as it covers many of the topics discussed in class, which will end up on the final exam and midterm. Also I would recommend taking notes in class so that you can try to understand the main points that were talked about during that day as it typically changes quickly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a great deal in this class concerning economics in general but mainly about inequality and the effects that it has on those in poverty. It challenged me to think critically about sources and arguments and how topics could support or contradict one another. This was not an easy course however, one will have to devote efficacious study to the topics and readings. In addition, from my experience, you will only be graded on two midterms, each worth 50%.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about many different aspects of poverty and inequality in the United States. I also learned about how the US government has handled inequality in the United States since 1964. In addition, I learned there is no easy solution to solving poverty and inequality, it will require a concentrated policy effort at the local level.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading and try to take notes along with it. That way you can easily review topics and subjects of interests before midterms and finals. Essentially, you will get as much out of this class as the time and effort you put into it.
