    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is not your everyday intro class. BUT I enjoyed it immensely due to the amount of knowledge the professor had on the subject. He was able to explain everything with great detail and made the class period enjoyable with jokes and funny anecdotes. I think everyone should take this class because it changed my mind of what I wanted to do with my future and my major!

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the different types of government and what exactly those governments believe in was very interesting. Learning what makes a state, nation, and democracy was fascinating since its not common knowledge. I also loved learned about the different government types and countries that have them, it really put the world into perspective.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go in it with an open mind. A lot of the topics are opinionated but its important to keep in mind that the professor is not saying that your beliefs or opinions are wrong, they may just not apply in the overall perspective. It is easy to get offended by topics like them being to "touchy" but just remember to remain unbias throughout the lessons.
