    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course if someone wants an introduction into the topics of International Relations. We covered many liberalists, realist, and constructivist theorists and went in depth into the particularities of each theory. We also covered the benefits of international institutions, terrorism, and the rise of China. Professor Pischedda was easily accessible and really wanted all students to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of the course for me was the section on terrorism. I was able to learn about the motivations of terrorists and he dispelled many misconceptions us in the West have about terrorism. Another highlight of the course was when we discussed the topic of polarity which I found fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A piece of advice that I would give students considering this course would be to always try to do the reading. Though many of the readings we did were dense, it will help prepare you. Even if you just skim the reading before class it will help prepare you to contribute to the lecture. In my class, there was mainly one student who answered questions because he was likely the only one who did the reading. Our class could have had many more engaging debates if more students read the books.
