    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My professor was very concise, organized, and friendly, so the class reflected the same. She made it fun: she gave us interesting articles to read that conveyed the required material, we had intriguing discussions in class where everyone engaged, and she gave us excellent feedback on written assignments. Because it was a Global Affairs related class, she let us use real life events in the world where we as students had to analyze and address in class as practice. We watched documentaries about the world, which were non-fiction, so it really made all of us in the class proud to be Global Affairs majors and to change the world.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions we had everyday in class were definitely important. Christine would have us read an article or out of our textbook, and she would assign a question/prompt in the form of an essay/short response to test our understanding and comprehension. In class, she asked the same question and everyone would raise their hands to contribute to the conversation. She gave us feedback on the spot and it was live, so not only the student who answered the question, but the whole class learned something from each answer. Every answer I heard in all discussions opened my mind and I soon was very comfortable to adding to every discussion. I have learned about more interactive approaches to solving problems and that having discussions about problems and conflicts in the world is a key part of my major.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely stay on top of the assignments. She gave us a required amount, and to have them turned in on time guaranteed the completion portion of our grade, but it also is just a good habit. I would also advise to be prepared with answers to prompts she had given the class before, so you would be ready for the discussions. Read the articles, textbook, and be engaged. Take good notes as well! Christine, my professor, thrived on good note taking, and she wrote so much of what she was saying on the board, and that was an automatic study guide for our exams.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the readings as assigned. They help understand the content that you will later learn in the class. It does take time, but it makes things so much easier for you.
