    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    First and foremost, Professor Christopher Soper is a great instructor! He is extremely passionate about his subject and he succeeds in making you want to learn about the political system in this country. Second, the subject matter is fascinating. You learn a great deal about American politics starting from the political developments of early America, to the political fracturing that occurred in the antebellum South, to the Supreme Court cases that shaped life in the United States as we know it. Third, it's an easy and light-on-reading course that involves a lot of discussing, which can lead to some interesting ideas being expressed and, if you're willing to hear out the other side, consensus.

    Course highlights:

    By far the two most interesting topics that we studied in class were gerrymandering and voting restrictions. Gerrymandering is the practice of manipulating the boundaries of electoral districts in such a way as to advantage a particular political party. Voting restrictions are laws intended to make it harder for certain groups of people to vote, effectively disenfranchising them. An example of such a law is restricting the number of IDs that can be used to register to vote. It was illuminating to see just how often our fundamental right to vote gets violated over and over again by cynical politicians who just want to keep staying in power.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to talk in class. Participation matters. Of course, don't just blurt out whatever comes to mind, but a thoughtful response now and then can help raise your grade, if, say, you're stuck between a B+ and an A-. Study in groups. All the tests are multiple-choice. The best way to remember facts is to make flashcards and have other people check your knowledge.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very insightful and helps people who know nothing about politics like me, understand every aspect of government.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about campaigns which is very helpful now that we are experiencing the presidential debate.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the material and really pay attention in class.
