Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It was interesting and I think the best part was the professor's ability to connect the material to current events which kept me engaged and focused. I thought it was the best class I had taken at UConn and I always recommend the class and the professor to other econ and non-econ students.
THis class covered a solid amount of material but to focus on some highlights there as the class title implies there was a concentration on International Economics. We learned about tariffs and their effects on trade and the subsequent effects involved with bi-lateral and multilateral trade deals. We focused a lot on international organizations that determined trade in a global economy. We also focused on a number of economic styles both historical and modern that countries used involving trade. Such programs like ISI or import substitution industrialization and EOI which is export-oriented industrialization. This is just to name a few things there were certainly more.

Advice for students:
Read the book! The professor does a great job with his powerpoint slides and lectures, but I found the book to be immensely helpful in understanding the material.
