PS 3170 - Political Leadership (CP/AP)

Although political leadership is the principal focus of the course, leadership is also considered in a wider context. What is a leader? What are the qualities that are necessary to be an effective leader? How can leaders build credibility? How important are the qualities of character and competence? What constitutes “successful” leadership? All of these questions will be addressed through the study of individuals who have held leadership positions in both the U.S. as well as in other parts of the world.
