Peris is pretty chill and this class is an easy A.
There are optional quizzes that a pretty as long as you do the reading.
You also have to write a weekly report on a congressional committee which get easier as the quarter progresses but I always got 10/10.
Would take Peris Again
I enjoyed taking this class with Professor Peris, and the timing of the course in the context of the subject matter of Congress and the events of early 2021 made for a particularly exciting and engaging course. Professor Peris' class was very straightforward and his lectures were organized (and recorded). I feel as though I learned a lot and the workload was light. No large writing assignments besides 8 weekly reports on a committee in Congress, but these were not overly time consuming. Optional quizzes and the midterm/final were straightforward if you studied (and likely not horrible even if you did not review, as he also held reviews in class).
One of my favorite PS upper div classes! Peris is an amazing and organized lecturer, the content is interesting, and the structure of the course is good as well. Easy weekly assignments and reading quizzes that make up half of your grade and the midterm/final are easy to do well on if you pay attention in lecture. Definitely recommend this course!!!
