    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is constantly mentally engaging. You are required to know your material for class so this helps you learn the material and retain it for the future.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of different ways to handle conflict especially on an interpersonal level. There are several different categories when it comes to dealing with conflict (they will definitely be taught in this class) and it is good to know what works best for you in a given situation. This course also allowed for individuals to express their opinion. It was important to hear other people's views because that allows you to develop an understanding of the world we live in.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Read. Read. Always read your given readings for a class because they will come up in a lecture and nothing is more awkward than no one knowing how to respond to the readings because they didn't read it. Reading will also pay off when it comes to writing the essays assigned in the course because you will have a general understanding of where to find the information needed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely intriguing for those who want to learn more about the perspectives of different world views. I'm taking this course as part of my major and it has sparked a larger intrest in what I'm going to be studying. There is a lot of reading associated with the course but it is well worth the time.

    Course highlights:

    One quote given by prefessor stuck me. It was "Forget about stances, ask why." You learn not only learn about how different strategies are used in conflict resolution, but also ways of overcoming conflict in your life as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Remember to complete your reading for this course. Most of the things that are reviewed in class are based on the reading from the week before.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a great introduction to conflict studies, and gives anyone interested in the concepts the space to explore and apply them to a conflict that interests them.

    Course highlights:

    You will learn about conflict theories like structural violence and triangular theories of conflict mapping. I got to study the civil war in Myanmar for my final paper, but you can choose whatever conflict situation you would so choose.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books, and consider taking it over the fall or spring semester, not the summer like I did. It's easy enough that it really isn't worth it.
