    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Smith broke down the basic concept of government and, in turn, answered questions to things that frustrate us, like "What's up with the electoral college?" Personally, I find politics complicated. Yet, this class cleared up a lot of concepts and now I feel a little less ignorant toward the government I live under, lol!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was the personality of the professor himself. He was funny, engaging, charming, and kind. He was quick to help after class and in office hours, along with during class. He made a lot of pop culture reference, which helped me a lot since they are so relevant.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be attentive in lecture! He talks A LOT. He does not drag on, he is just making a very elaborate point. He references a lot of examples, like books and movies. SO if you just take notes on the examples, those could help your memory! Also, your notes matter! They will help in the long run with open-book assignments.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very well-taught! Learning about different cases was very interesting and relevant to our society today. The fact that I could apply lessons from this class to my everyday life made it much more interesting and enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, we went over monumental cases in history that led to the laws we have today. Not only did we study the case facts, but we practiced different forms of judicial interpretation and learned to analyze judges' motives. There was no homework for this course; however, it helps to read beforehand so you can be active in class discussions.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes throughout the course and read the textbook. The textbook is written by Professor Sellgren herself so it has all you need to know to succeed in this course.
