What has been your favorite class at COA? Why?
Contemporary Politics in Latin America. Latin America is the region that I am more interested in. It was 10 weeks long but we covered so much information that, normally to cover that amount, would have taken longer. The teacher was great; the class flow was dynamic. We studied cases that made the class feel more real.
