    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took a hybrid model for this course, and it was time consuming. This course never failed to leave me empty handed in the homework department. It had way too much "busy work."

    Course highlights:

    One major highlight of this course is that we had very few face to face classes. After midterms, we only met every two weeks, once a week. However, it is debatable with the workload if it was really worth it.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You must do every homework assignment. In this class, it really helped my grade at the end of the semester. You must study for the exams several days prior to test day. The first exam of the semester is by far the hardest, and the class average was a 67%. However, test scores did improve drastically throughout the course of the semester.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very specific about the history of American Government, however the entire course is based on his lectures. So, if you do not have a lot of time outside of school, this class is great, as it does not have reading or many assignments besides tests after a number of lectures.

    Course highlights:

    The history of federalism in the United States was interesting. Learning about specific Supreme Court cases is informative as well.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the lecture and take very specific notes. Just about exactly as he writes them. The test is completely dependent on the lecture notes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although this course is required to graduate. This course is extremely interesting. I'd recommend it not only because it's interesting but it's real and valuable information about our government. I am not a History but polical science person but this course is amazing to me and I'm truly enjoy it.

    Course highlights:

    I'm learning more and more everyday. I can't just point out one specific thing that I learned because they all tie in to each other. The entire course is the highlight if you asked me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a lot of information that Is being thrown at you so don't be Afraid to ask questions.
