TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CONTEMPORARY GEOPOLITICS
I found this course very well organized, informative and knowledge enriching. I really enjoyed doing this course. Thank you very much to coursera and the college for providing this oppoetunity.
The course is indubitably informative, and of great help in understanding the evolution of geopolitics as well has the historical context behind many of the present-day geopolitical equations.
This course was information dense and has helped to shed light on a number of issues that occur today in Global Politics such as the middle eastern conflict.
Very good in general. Some aspects are a little dry and don't go into as many details as I would like but the three case studies are very well done.
