28. PSCI 100: Introduction to American Politics

Contact:Joe Rollins
Abstract:This course is an introduction to the American political system and is designed
to provide students with a basic_but broad_understanding of its design, how it
functions, and how it is influenced. We will begin by examining the
constitutional and ideological foundations of American government, and then
explore the workings of key national institutions, including Congress, the
presidency, the bureaucracy, and the federal judiciary. The final part of the
course will be devoted to examining how citizens influence these institutions
through political parties, interest groups, campaigns and elections, and the
media. Across the semester our concern will be to consider the links
between theories, processes and institutions of governance, specifically the
government and its relationship to its citizens.
