    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    POLS 131 Current World Problems is a class offered to students of any major that offers a very interesting take on the problems we face today on the earth. It offers a global perspective rather than how one from the United States views an issue. The issues addressed range from religion to the environment and more.

    Course highlights:

    Some very interesting topics we addressed were global climate change and global perspectives between cultures. The climate change unit offers some statistical analysis of how the world is physically changing. On the flip side, the global perspective unit offers comprehensive viewpoints to ponder.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a textbook with this course and short readings are assigned every day. They don't take much time and can be completed in under an hour. If you do the readings and pay attention during lecture you will do very well in this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Holly Boux was incredibly knowledgable about her field and provided us students with a well-rounded knowledge of what is currently happening and has been happening as far as world problems go. The class pushed me to think about what differences I can make in the world and gave me an understanding of the responsibility that my generation has to affect good change - to change the world we live in for the better. The class was not easy; however, it was rewarding. The book was an added layer of help, but being in class was the most important thing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about every conflict from human trafficking to environmental disasters and learned that there are ways to find solutions for these problems. A highlight was that the midterm and final were essay-based which I prefer to multiple choice as you get to demonstrate your own personal knowledge and taste.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend getting the book and keeping up with the reading. Also, don't miss class! Professor Boux talks pretty quickly and covers a lot of really great, interesting material in class.
