    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Understanding how the government works is so important because we live in it every single day. Even if you aren't into politics it is still incredibly important to understand the basic structure and processes that go on to run a country.

    Course highlights:

    In this particular class I was required to read the book Outliers by Malcome Gladwell. This book has been influential on my view of subjective success in politics and in the world as a whole. Much of our success cannot be attributed to ourselves, but we still have the ability to set ourselves up for success by practicing what we do, working hard, and connecting on a personal level with people who are already successful in our field.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the chapters assigned and create outlines that you can edit and add to while in class. I still have the document on my computer with all of my notes and it is over 20 pages long! This strategy set me up for success and allowed me to always have study material available in a language that I could understand.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very intimidating, but overall, it was bearable. Prof. Luckow was very thorough, and I would recommend it because I learned a lot.

    Course highlights:

    I got to read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and I learned a lot about the history of our government, and that was very enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. A lot. Do all the quizzes, and keep up with deadlines. Make an outline of each chapter with terms and ideas about what you learned - this will help you do really well on the tests!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a Georgia requirement that a lot of people dread taking. However, I actually didn't struggle too bad with this class. It was a very heavy reading class, and we actually went through the entire book.

    Course highlights:

    My professor had us do a mock campaign which ended up being very informational. I was able to learn about all the things that actually go into a campaign, and what all the background people do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Read. Read. It was also helpful to form relationships with the people in the class so that you could always call someone to help you understand something.
