    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Overall not a very hard course. Make sure to read the book and take good notes along the way.

    Course highlights:

    The basic structure and function of the main government bodies. Learning, first hand, how a legislature is run.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only advice a student would need is to stay on top of your readings and take good notes. Attending class and reading through the power points beforehand helps very much.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I came from CPS and I honestly didn't know much about politics but I honestly learned a lot. The only bad part about this class is that I was bored and quite honestly fell asleep in some classes, but I think it was due to my lack of interest in the field in general. I simply wanted to learn the basics of politics and I did.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the history of politics and I got to read some of the most important documents used when this nation was establishing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take into consideration the time you are planning on taking this course because you don't want to struggle during winter mornings for a one hour class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to those who are interested and curious to learn more about how our American government functions.

    Course highlights:

    In 2013 my Professor said, "Just imagine if some like Donald Trump was president. Wow, that gave me chills..." I learned that money and politics can't live without each other.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention the first time and you won't really have to struggle for the rest of the semester.
