Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it provides students with a lot of valuable information that I think is very relevant and that students should be aware of. With all this information comes jam packed lectures with tons of info in a fast paced lecture. This was a downside and was a little overwhelming when it came to studying for the exam. But if you do study for the exam, and memorize everything the exams and essay questions are fair and straightforward. There is a limited amount of grades in the class though, so be careful and try to do well on every assignment because a B on one exam will impact your grade a lot. Also, don't forget about the online quizzes.
I loved learning about refugees and the issues of that throughout the world as well as connecting everything like climate change, spread of disease, mass migrations and other things to globalization. And also learning about the interactions of different cultures. This class touched on a lot of different topics and was a great way to learn about different areas of international studies.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to take a lot of notes and memorize a lot of seemingly useless information for exams. But other than that there really isn't homework every day. Don't waste your time reading the articles before lecture. The quizzes are all take-home.
