This class was tough.
I learned so much from this course about theories in international politics; things that I think might be very important to know. However, the homework load was so intense so don't expect an easy A.
I learned a lot about the theories that people have used to explain the international system (how countries and leaders interact with each other), which I think is an important background to have. It isn't stuff I think I will use in my everyday life, but it taught me to think critically about the world.

Advice for students:
Some of the readings are essential for the test, and some of them don't matter at all so to be safe you should do the readings but if they are too long don't stress about skipping a few. It is hard to catch up when you fall behind so pay special attention to what was emphasized in class.
