Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It is fairly not a difficult GE, but it does require a lot of work. Readings and weekly response papers are mandatory, but also very helpful to the midterm and final. Test is not hard but requires tons of memorizations. Overall, it is not an easy GE, but if you really read all readings, try to memorize concepts and go to the lecture, A is definitely doable! P.S.there is no curve and 93+ is an A. So it is kind of hard to get A but still possible if you really do your work!
You can really learn something in this course. I learned some basic but interesting facts on International and Area Studies and honestly those are not boring at all!

Advice for students:
Make sure you have enough time to do the readings and papers!
