    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course for all students at UGA. The teacher really knows this course and is always available to help answer any questions you might have about the topics. Assignments and tests are graded rather quickly and the teacher always provides feedback and help on the assignments you have turned in.

    Course highlights:

    I've gained more insight on what politics really is and what are ways to ignite change in the politicals system we have today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would inform students that they need to take this class seriously because it could end up being difficult if they do not dedicate enough time to this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was extremely interesting, and I was always excited to be there. My professor Dr. Garrett was fantastic and definitely a distinguished scholar over her area of study. She made the class fun, interactive, and personable. She remained unbiased and to this day I could not tell you her personal political ideology. She creates an atmosphere that you can feel comfortable sharing your opinions and keeps everything very fair and balanced. My reason for taking off one star, is because there is a lot of reading associated with this course. It is not dry or boring reading, and our professor did a great job during lectures of expanding on the reading and making it easier to work through, there was just a lot of it. We also had a breakout class, which is a separate class that meets once a week with only 30 students, versus the 250+ in our lecture class, so that the material can be gone over in a more personal atmosphere. Overall, this course was extremely fun and useful to developing practical ways to participate in politics.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, we learned mostly about things just as political parties, ideology, and the American government and bureaucracy as a whole. We got to see the different sides and different ways the government can be ran, and we learned about the pros and cons of the different ways. We worked through a textbook called "The American Political System" by Ken Kollman, which was a very thorough and interesting textbook. It provides real life examples of different policies and ideologies that make the material more relatable. Apart from our lecture class we also had a breakout class taught by a TA that centers around how to have civil discussion with people on topics like politics. We had mock debates, learned about current events, and got help with things such as absentee voting and internships. We also worked for mock committees and wrote up legislation that had to be voted on by the class, to learn how the House of Representatives and the Senate get legislation passed. We covered the lecture and reading material more thoroughly and if we needed help or clarification in the class, the TA always helped us. This class taught me a lot about different political ideologies and where they come from, how to better participate in politics, and the ins and outs of how the government does and can function.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should definitely take this course, especially with Dr. Garrett. Whether you're interested in politics or not, this course will be interesting and will help you participate in our political system.
