    | 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.

    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.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course mixes theory with current events allowing each students to form their own ideas based on what is currently happening around us. We learn to judge and understand these issues through international relations theories that help us interpret the international community to our preference. It was a class based on our opinion but with good facts.

    Course highlights:

    It is a course that made me more sure of my International Affairs majors. From learning about theorist to problems without passports such as global health and climate change, it was an eye-opening course that successful puts down borders and allows to see the international community as a working body.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read always and listen to your classmates. Everyone knows something you don't and I learned some of the best information by listening to my peers because not only did they help me understand the material in a simpler form, they all that different thoughts that helped shaped mine.
