Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Even if you are not majoring in Political Science or studying anything that needs this course, I highly recommend this course for anyone in need of a Gen Ed. The material is simple to understand if you have any interest in politics whatsoever. It is an interesting class because you have an opportunity to understand how our political world is set up.
There is only one exam in the course (the mid term) while it wasn't too difficult, you have to study a lot but other than that, the class only has papers. This allows you to apply the textbook definitions you've learned to political situations around the world and give your own interpretation about them. I've enjoyed this because I get to study my own areas of interests without preparing for a test.

Advice for students:
To prepare for the midterm, make sure you do most of the readings as you go along in the class os you are prepared to begin studying for the midterm. Make sure you start papers early enough so you have enough time to fact check and edit your paper.
