Political Science Class?

<p>Hey, just a quick question.</p>

<p>I registered for an Intro. To Political Science class but I am tempted into dropping it and taking something else like an Art class. My major is Biology and I am not really into politics and what not. Can anyone w/ experience provide me with some feedback? Like what is the rigor of the class: Hard or Easy to get an A? Does this class require discussions or is it more lecture based? Heavy reading? Any other advice will be grateful.</p>

<p>Btw, I dislike politics in general and find it boring, that's one of the reasons I am tempted in replacing it.</p>


<p>It would be impossible to say without knowing your particular university. Ratemyprofessors.com might be able to give you a general idea, or see if your prof. has posted a syllabus online. Also, know whether or not you need the class for your general education requirements.</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice, now for a small change to my original post.</p>

<p>Basically, this is for an elective. I have to choose between 2 classes now:</p>

<p>Political Science or Anthropology, anyone know which is more interesting? Apparently both the professors that teach it are interested and "easy As". Just want something to keep my attention. Thanks.</p>

<p>For me, I would find Poli Sci more interesting since it's more about how that aspect of society works. I found Anthropology very dull because it was like a history class, which I don't do too well with.</p>

<p>TAKE THE POLI SCI CLASS!! I may be a bit bias because I'm a political science major but I loved Intro to Poli Sci. I also took an Anthropology class and it was the worst thing that ever happened to me. I hated it. </p>

<p>On the other hand, my boyfriend (who is pre-med and a previous bio major) took one Anthropology class and loved it so much that he switched his major to Anthropology. So... I guess it all depends on what interests you?</p>

<p>It's probably is a smart decision not to take the class if you don't like politics. I say you take art or some science class.</p>

<p>Not to mention it'll be sweet to take Poli Sci during election time. That's why I picked Poli Sci. :)</p>

<p>^That's what I was thinking. I thought about dropping world history for it, but couldn't because all of the classes conflicted with a class with only 1 section. :(</p>

<p>Political science is required at a lot of schools. I'd probably take it just in case I decided to transfer. IMO, both are sort of history classes. Just pick which one has the better professor and sounds more appealing.</p>

<p>Seriously don't worry about how easy or hard the class is. Take whichever class you like the best.</p>

<p>Obviously, difficulty and content will vary vastly depending on your school and specific teacher. Nobody can say whether it'll be easy or hard for you.</p>

<p>That said, intro poli sci classes usually involve a lot of reading.</p>

<p>you can probably find a syllabus for a previous year's class somewhere. you can also probably go on ratemyprofessors.com and see what they have to say.</p>

<p>As an IR major, I think political science is definitely a worthwhile class.</p>

<p>If its required take it. I came into school as a PoliSci major and took a World Politics class. I eventually changed my major to business, but that PoliSci class I took is by far the most interesting class I've taken so far, really made me think.</p>
