    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is highly recommended to upper year students who enjoy listening in class. We discuss course readings in class so students must be able to keep up with each weeks reading. The professor I had would analyze the main concepts discussed by ancient and modern philosophical political theorists (Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Hobbes, etc.) Taking the course in the summer required faster and heavier workloads, however each weeks reading are reasonable and can definitely be done in before each class. The class discussions always clarified all of my questions regarding the reading, and professor Vassiliou set a comfortable environment for students to openly state their opinions without pressuring anyone one who didn't want to speak out loud. The tutorials were small and very helpful for those students (like myself) who are self-conscious about the questions we have.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights about this course was that we learn about ancient political philosophers who wrote these handbooks and theories hundreds of years ago, but they some how relate to current politics. From Aristotle to machiavelli, we learn these strategies and definitions that are used by current day politicians like Donald Trump. I learned how society has normalized dictatorship and cruel leaders in such subtle ways that history is repeating itself from our blind spots because most of us are only aware of what is right before our eyes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is highly recommended to upper year students who enjoy listening in class. We discuss course readings in class so students must be able to keep up with each weeks reading. If you missed the weeks readings for any reason, try your best to look over online summaries and analyses online at least. There is no point going into lecture with no acknowledgement of what or who will be the topic of discussion. As long as you are able to keep up with that, the lectures are very interesting and critically analyze the assigned readings.
