  • If after reviewing the syllabus for each you feel you can pass the 200 course with an A take that.  200 courses always look better on your transcript than 100 courses. On the other hand A's always look better than B's or C's.

  • You can expect one to be more theoretical (poli sci) and one to be more factual (history), but beyond that, it all depends on the prof. I had to take them both, and they complemented each other, but neither was truly a complete coverage of the subject US history and government without the other.

  • I always tell my kids to look for the class that satisfies the most requirements. Some classes will cover multiple requirements and if it's a subject not integral to your major or doesn't interest you, it's best to knock those requirements out with the fewest classes possible. This can also help you get your degree in the quickest possible way-

  • Personally, since those wouldn't be classes of choice for me, I would take the HIS 111 because 100 classes are easier than 200 classes. If you have more of an interest in Political Science though, then go with that one.

  • All universities have different number systems and course descriptions. You need to look in your course catalog and determine which class better suits your interest. Also, try to get your hands on the syllabi and compare work load.

  • You have to be more specific for me. I am a dual major, Poli Sci and History...our numbering is I have no clue what you would be taking here.

  • It sounds like whatever makes you happy.

  • I absolutely loved my political science class. But it really comes down to what you feel more inclined to do, what you have more interest in, or what kind of class you'd be more happy in (like NP said), but I wish you well whatever you decide! :)
