Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would strongly recommend this course for any students who are interested in current global affairs and international relations. The professor succeeded in keeping the class engaged, and I believe my knowledge of these topics has greatly improved since taking this class.
The course focused on issues such as globalization, terrorism, climate change, aid, and the impact of governmental agencies (i.e. the UN, The World Bank, The World Trade Organization etc). We also focused on the 2007 financial crisis-- learning the forces that led to the crisis, as well as the state of the world following the crisis.

Advice for students:
There is a pretty large amount of readings assigned weekly in this course. It is important to stay on top of the readings as they provide further information of the subjects taught in class. The end of semester exam will be very overwhelming for someone who has neglected to stay on track with the readings.
