    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would and will recommend this course because the variety of current information combined with the historical information and records created an interesting and insightful course. The writing is lots of work but the topics were engaging and interesting. Class discussions and debates were always exciting and easy to participate in.

    Course highlights:

    I took this course during the 2016 election, so the highlights definitely involved the weeks leading up to that. It was great to learn about all of the national issues at the time, so I was well educated on the topics during debates and conventions. The incorporation of news stories like shootings and riots were always helpful in gaining information about how the news is distributed and how to seek out bias.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to the professor's office hours. He offers extra help to students that make effort to meet with him and highly appreciates those who get invested in the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The wonderful thing about this class is the amount of in class learning. It is the class that you can do well in just by being present and taking good notes on the lectures. Outside of class, there aren't any homework expectations, no assignments to turn in. The professor simply asks for you to read a few documents each week and to study. It creates a class that you can pass even with the weight of other classes and work on your shoulders.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a greater appreciation for the past. This class isn't about dates, it's about events and the effects that they caused. You don't have to know exactly when it happened, just in the order that it happened and how they lead into each other. It gave me greater insight into the way things are today, and how to recognize the same patters that have been there for a long time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes. That is the first thing. Be in class, awake, alert, and ready to take notes. He can move fast at times, but as long as you do your best, you will be fine. Also, pay attention to when he says things are really important to know, and when they are not. That will make a great difference.
