Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I highly recommend any individuals currently studying political science, government, international relations or a major related to these fields to take advantage of this course because the professor delves into the politics of Africa, Asia and parts of Latin America in great detail. This course will certainly broaden your perspective and challenge what you know about government and political policy.
Some of the most beneficial aspects of the class were the multiple speakers that presented their own perspective about the topics being learned. They were all professionals in their fields and all from the regions they were asked to speak about. Listening to someone originally from a different country who has a completely different perspective from my own challenged and broadened my understanding on not only the politics of the regions we were learning about but american politics as well.

Advice for students:
Attend every lecture and pay attention to each speaker. Be involved in the class and engage in discussion. The professor will encourage it, and you are likely to learn something valuable during discussions. Some of the subject matter you may have never heard of before, so be sure to be an active learner and ask questions before, during and after lecture. Professors want to share their knowledge with you.
