Variable Topics Research Seminars for Majors: Political Theory
Spring 2022 - I enjoyed taking this research seminar with Professor McClure. She is quite knowledgeable about many different topics and will discuss with you her perspectives about our everyday world that will force you to critically think in ways that we normally do not think. She always pushed us to think critically about the usage of heuristics to what is not as frequently questioned. The structure of this course was quite organized and it was formatted as a discussion section with around 10 to 15 students sitting at an oval office table. Each of us would research every week and discuss our findings for our research and share them with other students in the course. She would always go out of her way to answer any questions we have and even made time on weekends to schedule zoom office hours for students that struggled to understand how to use heuristics. If she taught any other course, I would probably take her other courses. This course was based on research for a 15 to 20-page paper on a topic of our choosing. I really enjoyed this course and would recommend anyone to take this course.
