7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I really gained alot from observing the inside work of how governments deal with foreign affairs publicly and privately. I definitely recomend it for any political science major or any one interested in foreign affairs.
The variety of the books we covered. The Mead book helped to structure understanding of how policy makers think.
I liked the presentations. It offered us a chance to bring in information that wasn't previously discussed or to discuss about what is going on in the world currently.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
I can't think of one; every piece of knowledge that was introduced held some level of value that pertained to the topics we discuss in class.
Something that can easily be altered: having more structure to the course by having a more chronological approach to the material.
I would have liked more structure to the lectures. The readings we probably could have done without as well.
