    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class and its materials are extremely applicable to the real world. I learned the inner workings of governments of countries that I knew little about, and I find that to be very handy in today's globalized culture.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about modern countries who still try to rule their people as opposed to governing for them was very interesting. I learned that this course of governmental action often leads to strife among the people and that democracy is just as awesome as I originally thought it was.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be able to commit to memorizing terms. It's pretty easy considering they're all real-world practices and entities, but you need to be able to memorize 60 over the span of 3-5 weeks. It helped me to write them a couple of times after taking them out of my notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is a very enthusiastic teacher, and the content is very beneficial for everyone. Possessing basic knowledge of other governments, their history and influences helps develop a deeper understanding of politics.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to properly put myself in other's shoes, and understand why certain things happen, and how the government contributes. I learned how other nations really do hurt weaker/under-developed nations, simply to keep themselves on top. I learned that no government is perfect, but every government plays a major role in improving other governments.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If your dream job includes traveling the world, you might want to look at other countries and their governments, and see if that job is still plausible.
