POLSCI 300 takes up issues that are the focus of contemporary political debate in the U.S., such as taxes and spending, poverty, healthcare, and relationships between the U.S. and the rest of the world. Curiosity, initiative, and a willingness to examine ideas and "facts" critically are the essential prerequisites. We will read, discuss, write, and do a lot. You will write seven 1000-word papers over the course of the academic term, worth 70 points altogether. The other 30 points is based on your contribution to class discussions and your documented participation in relevant out-of-class activities. We do not grade on a curve.
