Good class with interesting guest speakers almost every week. You can tell that Peterson likes to teach this class. Exams are a mix of lecture and readings. Very straight forward. He has the same format for all of his classes. No textbook, online readings, 2 exams, 2 short papers and 1 big project at the end. Keep up with this class and you can get an A. It's nice because you discuss current events. Class is worth taking.

I found this class not only thoroughly interesting but highly beneficial. Now, granted, Peterson can sound a bit dull when he speaks and sometimes what he says may be made up on the spot, but his connections and the speakers that he brings in are invaluable. They may not be the biggest Hollywood directors, although some are pretty notable in their own right, the advice that they give and experience that they share, I found, to be incredibly engaging and helpful. This class is worth it just for the speakers.

And in terms of the class itself, the multiple-choice tests are incredibly easy, the research assignments are a breeze if you put the time in, and while I did my group project alone, if you do solid on everything else in the class, you shouldn't be in a position where your group score will dictate your grade. I highly recommend this class in particular.

He's pretty nice, if you go talk to him about your paper he'll try and raise your grade (if there were points taken off for silly things and it was your first time, for example). Tests are extremely easy, but you have to read all of the readings and take good notes during his lectures (everything. Even if it seems trivial and stupid, just write down everything he and the guest lecturers say). He asks some specific things sometimes. I enjoyed the guest lectures he had every week. The group presentation was limited to 2 minutes because we had so many.
