    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    With most classes involving politics, you have to learn about specific people and important dates that don't entirely affect you or your life. Then you have to remember this information and paste it onto a simple test. In this class however, you learn about how the government works and get to express your opinion on the subject. Despite the lecture's being two hours long, the professor is able to keep you on the edge of your seat.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how people have developed policies over the years. I learned about who and why people agree with and disagree with. One of the great parts about this course is that you can share your opinions on the matter without anyone else telling you to shut it and how you're wrong, unlike most political conversations between people.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to ask questions if you're not sure. If everyone but you knows the answer, then you have a whole class plus a teacher to help you understand what you need to know.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course online and it was a bit of a hassle. There are weekly assignments and lots of readings which can be confusing, but everything is explained in the instructor's course syllabus. He also has alternative assignments if, for some reason, a student can't complete one.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from this class, including terminology and events that focused on American political history and modern-day politics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Exams were open-note, but he uses information based off all of the readings provided which a single student might not have read. His study guides are extremely helpful this way. Assignments also come up in a flash. There are more than just weekly assignments and readings, some are actually interactive, so it'd be good to check up on the module or assignment list frequently to see what's coming up.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though I am a U.S. citizen, however, I did not grow up here. Therefore, taking this class help me improve my understanding to the U.S. government. Also, we spent a few classes talking about the foreign policies, which help me develop the basic idea of home;and security, a topic that I always have interests in.

    Course highlights:

    How the House Representatives and Senator work together and also carry out their project respectively. The process of enacting laws. The Court Cases that brought the equality to our society.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook before the class and pay attention during the lecture, since the professor shares lots of his unique ideas during the class. Also, be engage in the group discussions. When working with other students, we can exchange the thoughts we gains from the lectures, which helps us further understand the lectures.
