    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Elizabeth is always very excited for class, knows what she is doing, and makes it very easy to understand the material. Some paper or essay assignments are very vague, but overall everyone does well. Attendance is a must, participation and reading the text will help you breeze through this course. Her feedback is amazing. She is willing to work with anyone who puts in the effort. By far the best prof I've had. Weekly quizzes on the assigned chapters, but she gives you the terms and topics you need to study ahead of time. They are all multiple choice and 8-10 questions. There is a 2 group projects. The first one is very interactive and the debate gets heated! The second is mostly just a long powerpoint where you need to survey like 40 people and read demographics. I loved this class. Never missed it unless I had to. Elizabeth is a great prof so take any class from her.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to reach out to my other professors and got feedback from each one. Liz is not intimidating and is very welcoming. Aside from the material, I gained a new point of view since this was a politics class, you heard from very right and very left people in the room, where no judgment was help. It is a great learning opportunity for people to be able to be friends with each other on very opposite views.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, outline the reading, DO NOT SKIP THE MIDDLE SECTIONS OF THE TEXT WHERE IT JUST LOOKS LIKE EXTRA FACTS AND PICTURES. ESPECIALLY FOR THE MIDTERM/FINAL. Some of the material comes from there. Show up because a lot of what's on the midterms and final is from the videos we watch in class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very discussion based. However, what we discussed in class was not what we were tested on. So you definitely have to learn the material in the book independently.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight from this class was the simulation we did regarding immigration. It was a great learning experience because you had to really put yourself in someone else's shoes to understand.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    stay on top of the vocabulary quizzes they are silly points to lose.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher was very engaging and loved discussing the interesting points of politics - Klages took current news very seriously.

    Course highlights:

    I loved making a trifold of a topic I was passionate about. We were able to truly research and discuss what the pros and cons of policy were.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For her quizzes, try to use her study guide and read the entire paragraph that discusses the vocabulary.
