    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As an IR major, this is a great introduction to globalization and IR theory. This class is relevant to everyone who lives in the world, as it reviews issues of collaboration and current day events.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Morris' conceptual overview of the information makes this class beneficial and easy to follow. She also assigned a blogging project that was not only educational, it was enjoyable!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course textbook is great, but be prepared to skim. The reading can be detailed, but it's not the details you need to remember, it's the overall concepts and theories.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course! It teaches you the intricacies of specific international issues that include terrorism, genocide, human rights, etc. through theories and different case studies. It was a wonderful introduction into the subject, which can be extremely difficult to do as the field encompasses so many different areas and it can be confusing to link of these global matters together. You will definitely come away with an excellent introductory understanding!

    Course highlights:

    One of the main highlights of this course was that Professor Morris realized that class participation and discussion is just as important as lecturing on the class material. She balanced the two methods of teaching extremely well. She would give us just enough background information for us to really engage in a group discussion, where we formed our own opinions on specific issues and defend our arguments in the correct manner. She also understood the need of different ways to teach us about more complicated or sensitive matters, such as the Rwandan Genocide. After seeing the video filled with horrors of the massacre and the lack of intervention by other countries, I felt as though I had learned a lot more from analyzing the film than I would have in a typical classroom lecture.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely encourage keeping up to date with the required readings that Professor Morris gives, as they will really help you understand what she says in class the next day. Additionally, you will have better formed arguments about a particular issue if you do the background reading. I would recommend reading the material once before class, and once after class, so that you are able to analyze the content thoroughly. Another piece of advice would be to go to her office hours as frequently as you need to, in order to gain better instruction on how to improve your essays and your speaking capabilities when forming an argument. She will be able to give you more specific comments which will greatly help your overall development in the class. This one on one interaction also means that means that she can answer your questions in more detail. Hence, you will have a more comprehensive understanding of the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of those courses that teaches a student not only concepts, but how those concepts and ideas relate practically to the world we live in today, the context of our policies at home and abroad. A must-take for any student getting ready to vote!

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me to look beyond the information I am offered and question the context our society and country finds itself in and the intentions of our leaders.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and keep up with current events!
