    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good class. I learned a lot about the social policies in place and their history. There were a lot of people who took the course for a GE requirement, not as a major. I would only recommend it as a GE if you enjoy government or policy already, otherwise it would not be a good choice.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the social policies in place and their history.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to lectures, take notes, make sure you do the readings.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For me, these lectures were fascinating. I found that I held many opinions about social policies that were quite a bit off. As a Social Work major, I think everyone who pays for and votes in elections should have this information.

    Course highlights:

    This course looks at the history of social welfare policy in the US. So, there are numerous parts to it, but I learned that the issue of dependency is extremely layered and complicated.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get started on assignments early and take good notes. Strafford does not give study guides.
