    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, not only because all freshmen enrolled in the Elliott School of International Affairs, are recommended to take it but because it gives great and interesting insight into the topic of international affairs from an excellent and knowledgable professor.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the level of knowledge and expertise the professor had and made clear through his presentations and lectures but also the fact that his lectures might have been packed with information but were still easy to follow. I learned a lot about the basics behind international affairs and I am now even more confident I want to major in it as it has made me more passionate about the subject.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course contains a LOT of information. You must be paying attention to make sure you don't miss anything. Take detailed notes, ask questions, work with your TAs and do your readings. Also be sure to review often and get your questions answered early, because when it comes time for exams you will realize that if you did not prepare well enough, that there is just too much information to cover.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While this course covers a variety of interesting topics, the lecture are dull and do not provide a fresh insight or additional information to the textbook. There is tons of reading each week, and getting through the syllabus feels like a Sisyphean task.

    Course highlights:

    While I certainly learned about political systems and world history, perhaps the most important things I learned weren't so much based off of the material but instead based off the courses structure. There are only three grades in the course: a midterm, a paper, and a final. Because of this, I learned how to prioritize readings and structure my schedule so that I can best succeed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up the readings. While you don't necessarily read every article assigned pick three a week and make sure you thoroughly understand the key concepts.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is good, but I found Professor Sell and the TA's that she chose were not very good. I would take it with someone else.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about current events.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn how to read for the social sciences early.
