    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Understanding the political system of the United States is crucial in order to become a fully engaged citizen who can participate in meaningful discussion and social actions. It is a widespread sentiment among young individuals in the U.S. that voting is irrelevant, that politics are inherently corrupt, and that there is nothing we can do about that. Of course, this is far from the truth. I would highly recommend taking this course with any professor at UVM.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course probably were realizing small details about various presidencies that ultimately became colossal milestones for our country's history. Also, it was fascinating to learn about the unrest and issues facing our House of Representatives in a time of political polarization. This course will help you decipher the language of politics and policies on both sides of the aisle.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE READINGS!!! Even if your professor does not quiz you on your readings, the largest disservice you could do to yourself would be to ignore the essential reading materials that are provided for you. Do not take advantage of your privileged opportunity to have unlimited access to these materials. You will regret it later.
