    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you're looking for an easy GE don't take this class. This class is WORK. There are plenty of readings and some of them require a large amount of time to complete. You also need to take detailed notes from all of your readings and in lecture and discussion section. You also need to go to every lecture because a lot of what the professor says is on the exams but not in the readings. If Chao-yo is a TA, avoid him. He is a bit hard to understand at times and he expects you to participate but makes weird faces and makes you seem dumb if you don't say exactly what he wants you to say. There's one take home essay that's based on some real world event applied to things you learn in the class. I'd recommend this class if you are a poli sci major.

    Course highlights:

    You primarily learn about different types of democracies and their institutions. I initially thought we would learn more about socialism, communism, autocracy etc. but we didn't really go in depth. It seemed heavily focused on democracy, which i guess makes sense since it is the dominant form of government.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every lecture and take notes. You have to go to discussion session since attendance is taken and there are quizzes. Make sure you have a study partner or group because that's always helpful anyway.
