    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Paul Frank is an amazing political science teacher. His lectures are outlined so they are easy to read/take notes, he engages the class and talks in an enthusiastic tone which makes it interesting and exciting to learn about politics.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the whole generality of politics and how the government works and Paul Frank made it very easy to understand. We were required to read the news daily which kept me updated on current events in the US.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Print out the powerpoint lecture slides before each class and take notes on what he is saying so you won't miss out on any information. Put your phone away in class and pay attention. Read the newspaper daily. Keep up on readings so the lectures clarify on what you read prior.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I myself enjoy the fundamentals of political science and learning the roots of it in this class was an extremely fascinating time and an incredible teacher was the icing on the cake.

    Course highlights:

    After taking this course I got to learn a more in-depth analysis on how our country works and had to remember a majority of the amendments which was not an easy task for me at the time. My personal favorite highlight of the course was the debates that took place and no you do not need to have taken a communication course to enjoy or be skilled in them. Debates were my favorite parts because we discussed real world issues that were affecting us in our society today. The subjects of debate felt palpable and poignant which was hard to talk about sometimes but were still heated issues of debate that should be talked about such as gun violence in America, or issues on how far the divisions of our political parities have gone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking a Political Science course remember that the news is your resource to a lot of the topics that are discussed in class. History for some reason feels like it's doomed to repeat itself more than we'd like and because of that news outlets talk about heated issues in our society that have been occurring for a long time now and a majority of those issues are discussed throughout the course and will be debated on as well.
