    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are interested in political science as a possible major or minor, this is a great introductory class to international relations in particular that I would recommend taking. There is some writing involved, the class hits on a lot of relevant current events, and it is not a difficult or overly technical course to take. Overall, a very informative lecture and interesting discussion on all sorts of world events and how the United States should act based on existing foreign policies.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the biggest highlight of the course was writing policy briefs. Every week, the professor would assign a different current event topic that we would have to do research and write short papers about. Though tedious at times, these assignments are what made me a more informed and interested student, and also helped me improve my writing skills.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely encourage students to read the textbook a little bit beforehand, and read up on the news. As well, doing some reviewing and studying every week after lectures (which everyone should attend) would definitely help ace the midterm and final.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Recommended because courses are very structured and professor's exams are very reasonable. You can't go wrong if you just attend every lecture and understand the concepts and can get by with very minimal amount of general knowledge. Readings are relevant to current affairs which helps.

    Course highlights:

    Course is straightforward: 1 midterm - 25% (with IDs, short answers questions - mainly on concepts), 1 final exam - 35% , 7 policy briefs (drop 2 lowest scores) - 20%, participation - 20%

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go for every lecture, remain proactive in class, give your best effort for the policy briefs and pick a good writing structure to use when writing these policy briefs. As for the exams, be familiar with key words, remember some general knowledge facts (e.g. important members on NATO and the Soviet Union), apply concepts of constructivist, realists and liberalists (question on the schools of thought aren't hard if you really understand the concepts).
