    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course if you are looking to become more informed on how the United States government works or wanting insight into a potential major like philosophy or political science if you are someone with an undeclared/undecided major.

    Course highlights:

    I developed more insight into how diverse America is and how some people within this country still somewhat struggle today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend you take notes, buy the book so you can highlight in it, and study the powerpoints that the professor will e-mail you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned about my rights as an American citizen. I think that any American who wants to vote should take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different branches of government and how they work. I also learned how the American government came to be. Lastly I learned about American Policies.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the readings the teacher had pop quizzes on the readings and if you did not read you were lost.

    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.
