    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very informative. The things you'll learn are useful, and very relevant to your life, assuming you're a citizen of the United States. However, it is not a class you will have the ability to succeed in if the only efforts you put into it are showing up to class every lecture and listening to the conversations. ALL of the assigned reading is REQUIRED. The midterm, final exam, and even quiz questions are pulled right from the book. Study the text. It is essential to pass that class, and a lot of my classmates learned that the hard way.

    Course highlights:

    I was completely ignorant to political science entering the course. I could not identify the difference between political science and politics. In fact, I didn't know the difference! The instructor would assign us reading from the textbook, and then would discuss the contents of the textbook with us, answer our questions, and give us real-life examples that even the most politically-ignorant of us (me) could recognize and piece together. It was a very discussion-oriented class, which was definitely a highlight for me.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the assigned text as it is assigned or before, and then before quizzes and exams, get study groups together to study the text. All of the exams and quizzes are straight from the text, so do NOT put off studying it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is rigorous and challenges you to think outside of the box. There was no textbook and we read articles instead, which were far more interesting.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Elmore was not as opinionated during the course, which makes a political science course much easier to go through.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the articles!! Without reading the articles, you will not take anything from the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Political Science gets a bad rap for being boring and tiresome. Going into it I was scared that that was what I would go through. Thankfully I had Ms. Katrina Taylor, who helped me get into the subject. She made it relatable and easy to understand. I really enjoyed her class and hope to become her student again.

    Course highlights:

    One of the things that was the the most memorable was when we went over the Electoral College.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class. Most of the material in the books is covered in class, and though when quizzes are given you should do the reading, the mid term and the quiz are mostly covered in class.
