POLS2302 – Political Thought: Plato to Modernity 18.4

I will say this course is the toughest in the Political Science Major. This course is super difficult.

It is not easy to understand the history of politics way back from 1600 to 1800. The politicians' reading back in those years write profound English and is tough to understand what they say. The essay is tough that you need to link back to that old history of politics, the essay is a nightmare to get marks.

The summaries component is tough as well, to read and understand the reading text and come out with the correct argument and thesis are not simple at all.

The take home exam is really difficult as well. Basically, every component of this course needs to link back to the reading text (1600 to 1800).

Good luck taking this course. Thank God I passed it.

POLS2302 – Political Thought: Plato to Modernity 87.9

POLS2302 set itself the difficult and ambitious task of chronicling the history of Western thought, from Plato to the Utilitarians. It ran the risk of being superficial, poorly structured, and convoluted, but, to my astonishment, was elevated by the tutor's lucid exposition of the course material and the ease with which one could approach it all. It was a truly fantastic course that I'd recommend to anybody, political or otherwise.

POLS2302 – Political Thought: Plato to Modernity 79.2

Interesting course, but very content-heavy. Try to go to lectures (powerpoint slides aren't always clear). Prepares well for exams.
