PS 1150 - Honors American Federal and State Government


(3)
At its root, political science systematically studies conflict and struggle rather than static institutions and history. However not just human action, but these diverse institutions and past pathways create the present day public environment in which government operates. This course introduces students to major subtopics of American politics while exploring the various lenses scholars use to examine political phenomenon. Students in this course will be expected to go beyond merely learning the basics of the topic in order to create a classroom environment of enlightened discussion and discovery.

Prerequisite: Honors status or instructor approval.
