    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is all about Public Policy and how the government works, how policies are made and the different levels that information has to go through for things to become a public issue.

    Course highlights:

    I never understood the difference between a liberal and a conservative. I noticed that people were always debating, and complaining about liberals, but I never understood why, until I read about it in the textbook.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enter this class with an open mind, I am not a huge political person, and I did not enter this class with an open mind at all which caused me to struggle in the beginning.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you about the processes and actors involved in policy-making. Also, the course explains social welfare issues, proposed solutions, and the current resources.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge on the processes of lobbying, how to become an advocate, and who decides on how to address social issues. This class highlighted the fact that social welfare holds two categories; benefits for low-income citizens, and resources that help the general public. I enjoyed this course!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Personally, I like to learn all that I can since education is so expensive. But, I will say that paying attention to the extra reading and viewing material can help with writing assignments.

    the class is informative about policy formation, adoption and evaluation.

    Course highlights:

    What the ramifications are of reforming or terminating a policy

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay organized, prioritize assignments as I started discussion questions on the first day, assignments on day two, answers to discussions on day three.
