    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is informative and the assignments are something I look forward to every time. It is very open for students to choose what they want to write and learn about. The final paper seems like a lot but the student is allowed to choose the topic so it makes writing it fun. This professor has no limits and is not afraid to get to know the students.

    Course highlights:

    The final paper was the biggest highlight for me. The topics you're allowed to choose from are very broad so you can really choose what you want to write about. I chose to write about Woman's rights around the world and it really helped me learn how privileged America is compared to other countries

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The small assignments add up. Do not discard the weekly assignments because you will not pass if you do. Talk to Valari; she is a great person and will always want to talk to you. Do not, under any circumstances, save the final paper for the last minute.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a very good introductory course into Political Science. Peterson is an excellent professor, and he encourages critical thinking over memorization. I would recommend the course if you are thinking about a career in political science.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are the discussions. The discussions are very open-ended, and often, there are more questions at the end than there were in the beginning. It is a class that teaches you how to think.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you complete a very thorough analysis of everything. Look at each of the players, and figure out their motivations. What were their goals? Where are they in reality? After doing so with each of the examples from the course, you will have a much better understanding.
