    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Carters Intro to American Politics is not a walk in the park. It is meant to make you work for your grade. As she has put it " You need to hustle". Carter wants her students to be attentive and better students after taking her. She has opened my eyes to how much work graduate and Law school will most certainly be. There is a good amount of assigned reading and if students show up to class without having done it they are completely lost on what is being discussed. Another aspect is she always plays devils advocate and makes the class see the opinions point of view. After failing it once and retaking it for a better grade I do not regret taking her; she is a professor that knows what she is talking about and challenges her students to become critical thinkers

    Course highlights:

    A more in-depth understanding of the election systems, government, and politics in general. Carter not only teaches you how the curriculum but also how to be a better student. This is not done explicitly but by just taking her class one begins better time manage, network with students for study groups, and understanding the values opinions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are looking for an easy A do not waist your time by taking her. Now, if you plan on going to graduate school or beyond then take Carter's class. It will be the hardest C you get but it will chin check you into the reality of what is coming in a higher education.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a perfect way to delve into both American history and the history of American politics. With November quickly approaching during this election year, it was the perfect class to take because it delves into the history and establishment of our modern day political system. This class serves to explain the complexities of our political system and gives insight into how your vote can affect policy and politics as whole.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Tang is a very funny and entertaining instructor. This course goes over the establishment of the US government and the details of how, why and for how long government officials are elected as well as the purposes they serve within our political system. This course explains the importance of the Bill of Rights, Constitution and the ground breaking cases that led to amendments to the constitution. This course also explains presidential elections in detail, including the primaries, super PACs, and political polling among many others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course requires going over the material various times to make sure you understand the details of each part of government. Taking notes in class and going over the materials and or recorded lectures is enormously helpful in learning and retaining information especially with the fast pace of this class.
