    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course curriculum feels redundant and doesn't really teach me anything new that I can't gather from watching the news.

    Course highlights:

    I don't feel like I learned anything that I did not already know.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the webtext and keep notes. Build an outline to complete your papers.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very informative! You learn about the way of life in developing countries and the view of other nations through economic conditions. It is pretty shocking to see how much the United States have helped others in dire need, yet is viewed negatively in other countries.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that even though there are people in need all over the world, there are people close by to thrive off of their suffering and handouts. People do not learn to develop while accepting aid from others. In order for these countries to become economically stronger, they must first find a way to accept assistance then learn to advance and thrive from it. Or find a way to continue surviving without taking handouts.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to read the book provided. Everything you need is in there, for both exams and the information needed to answer the discussions. The book is set up with questions throughout, some of these questions may come up in your exams so make sure you stay on track with your reading. I also suggest starting on you NSC assignment early. There is a lot of work and you need to work with other students so answer your emails!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course has helped to me to understand much of what plagues today's society. I have also learnd that efforts can be made at any level, national organizations, international organizations, and corporations can make an impact in reducing the need for vital, sustainable infrastructure.

    Course highlights:

    Through the use of videos with personal stories about peoples lives, the well writtuen text takes you into the lives of different individuals in various undeveloped societies. I learned that solutions are unique to many of these countries. Some may have strong, democratic governments, but weak institutions that are incapable of holding the society together, like Venezuela. Others may be in a civil war. Today's civil war casualties are 90% civilian in nature. Over half the world lives on less that $2.50 a day and many do not ha ve clean drinking water. I learned that strong inclusive institutions (banks, police force, churches, education systems, taxation, unions, are necessary, etc.) to hold a society together so it can grow. I learned may of the efforts to alleviate conditions in these countries were not sustainable and poorly planned. It will take the combined efforts of these organizations along with the governments that need aid. Yet, despite these obstacles, over 60% of Africans have a smart phone. Finally, I came to learn that own problems as an American are incomparable with the plight of many others around the globe.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. The material, though in-depth, was quit interesting. The videos were as touching as the stories in the text. I learned fascinating things about developing countries and how people in them live.
