    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Gave me valuable knowledge into the inner workings of American politics that I didn't know before in an understandable and rather entertaining method.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of this course is the class discussions that we have regarding topical issues such as health care and immigration. We also discuss the impacts of American parties and how current and past laws affect politics.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take detailed notes from the textbook in Cornell Notes format. Thoroughly read the textbook material as well as there's some interesting and valuable concepts that can be applied to exams. Participation is a requirement for this class in order to grasp concepts and apply them in class and on exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The content of the class is extremely interesting and useful, everyone should know how our government works. The professor however is rather dreary, unfortunately making an interesting topic into a boring lecture. Still a good class, and I would repeat!

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course is the 2-3 week government simulation the class does at the end of the semester. Every student takes the role of a government official and is given a biography on that person, and works to pass laws, acting as they would. It helps learn how difficult our system makes to effectively pass laws.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you are able to sit through repetitive, slow, lectures, while still picking up on the content of said , you will excel in this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The content could have been good and informative, but the way the professor taught did not allow for much real learning.

    Course highlights:

    Because I am taking this course during the 2016 Presidential Election, we spent quite a bit of time talking about relevant issues.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your research on professors. I recommend finding a different professor who may teach in a different way.
