    THIS IS FOR ANY FRESHMAN WHO THINKS THEY ARE INTO POLITICAL SCIENCE: If you are a human who regularly listens to NPR, the Daily, took AP gov, or literally just has a BASIC understanding of American politics this is gonna be a boring and pointless class. Similarly, if you are interested in learning/thinking about the world with a remotely critical lens, this is not the department for you. Try history, WGSS, CSER, etc. I truly do not understand why Miller has goodish reviews. White men trying to be sassy and smart while they state basic information is so triggering— and he is exactly that. I do not trust anyone who has good things to say about this class.

    Moresky is incredible and passionate about global health, and in this course you will learn directly from world experts. Moresky makes a real effort to make what could be a dry topic into an enjoyable class, largely through her sort of infectious excitement about it. The guest lecturers are the bulk of the course, and 90% of them were fantastic. The course exposes students to a huge variety of topics, so it's always something new, and will likely speak to you in some way. I wish more of the public health courses were like this, and less about the tedium of statistics and systems. Several short responses, a group project, a midterm, and a final. If you pay attention to the broad strokes, you're solid. I didn't find any of the readings all that helpful. The exams had several writing prompts, and you pick a few to write about. The group project was actually enjoyable with my group, and you can pick what topic you want to cover. The TAs were alright.

    Professor Phillips is an absolute gem! The material is interesting and makes you appreciate the ways in which major civil rights action happens at the state level. You begin with a few weeks on federalism and then focus specific units on civil rights issues like reproductive rights, gay marriage, and immigration. The pacing is also fair and readings aren't difficult to understand. Mainly, however, I would say take this class because Professor Phillips is genuinely just a nice person and a great professor. Definitely go to office hours to chat with him.

    Prof Cohen is extremely knowledgeable about the intersection between political thought and comparative politics. She doesn't stand for vagueness in your essays or your presentations and can smell BS from miles away. That being said, she seriously needs to add more structure in her classes. It is very difficult to follow what she's trying to say. Do not take this class if you're not comfortable with political theory--she has very high expectations for conceptual clarity and you'll likely not do well if you don't have a strong background.
