    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class for those willing to put in the work, because even though it is not an easy course, Professor McKelvey is an incredible instructor and helped keep me engaged in lectures. Because this class deals heavily with current events while tying them to basic political concepts, there is a big responsibility to stay on top of your readings. By doing this though, you are sure to get through the course much more swiftly.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an incredible understandng of how political systems work as well as what was really going on in the world at any given time. Professor McKelvey always kept his knowledge current and would keep the class up to date on politics every day, even through a Facebook page that our class created. He also assigned reading assignments from The Economist which completely changed how I viewed politics, making me entirely more eager to learn more and more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most crucial piece of advice I would give is to do the readings and to keep up with notes. Professor McKelvey allows his students to voice record and so I would also recommend recording while taking notes just in case you miss any important information. This class can be intimidating, but if you show up and do the work it will be highly rewarding.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, and professor, because it applies to every aspect there is for being an American. People need to know what is going on in their government and how it is going to affect the generations to come, as well as their own.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights from this course that I really enjoyed were going over current events (for instance, FL just recently declared the death penalty unconstitutional) and having discussions about cases and what amendments they abide by (Same sex marriages, death penalties, abortion laws, divorce cases, and many other topics as well).

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    For any students looking to take this course, I would highly recommend keeping up with current events. Having the textbook on hand will make note taking and studying much easier. And lastly, tune in to what your professor is saying because these are things that are affecting your life right now and your future to come.
