    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Shiraev is an understanding and effective professor. He teaches the large class well, and encourages questions and discussion frequently. Topics discussed include current and historical foreign relations with Russia, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and more.

    Course highlights:

    The four tests are open-book and open note, even laptops are allowed! Questions though, are mostly critical thinking and analytical. The textbook required for purchase can be found at a reasonable price online, and much of it is covered and it is useful during tests. I do think I benefitted greatly from Shiraev's course, and that I learned the fundamentals and uses of IR theory.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the textbook, do the readings, bring everything to the tests (notes, textbook, powerpoint slides)! Pay attention, but know that attending the courses is not mandatory and that you should be fine to miss a few of them, so long as you keep up with the readings and assigned material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very engaging course that deals with real world theories and understandings of government systems and how they came to be.

    Course highlights:

    Constantly mentally engaging. It was a lot of hard work, but it is worth it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the readings given before the class and take notes from the readings as you go along. Take few notes in class so you don't confuse yourself with content in the future and always study to retain the information. Take the initiative throughout the course and you will be successful because Professor Butt wants to see that you are always trying and willing to learn.
