Quarter: Spring 2022
Grade: A+
June 21, 2022

I thought this was an extremely engaging and worthwhile class. Assignments were all reasonable, especially given that there were no tests. The grade consisted of a few weekly writing assignments (2-3 pg) and then a group polling project that was pretty easy. He cares a lot and shows it while also making the subject extremely accessible.

Quarter: Spring 2022
Grade: A
June 6, 2022

This was one of my favorite classes for the quarter. If you are a Political Science major, you need to take Peris at least once during your time here.

The class was easy, but there is a heavier workload than expected. You must sign up for a survey-taking website, write 4 papers on the experiences and relate it back to course material. In addition, there is no final exam, but you do need to conduct your own survey as a final project. You have to work in a group of 3, and while the professor does not walk you through making charts and graphs and using Google Sheets, he is always available via email if you have any questions or concerns.

The other nice thing about this class is that the professor encourages students to speak up and engage in his lecture. This makes the class feel more like a collaborative discussion than a monotone lecture. He starts every class by asking if there's anything in the news to discuss, and students can talk about anything that interests them.

Public opinion is a subject that I only knew little about, but after taking this course I have a much better understanding of how important it is for the field I want to go into. If you like more hands-on application in terms of homework and project assignments, then this is a class you need to first pass!
