This course provides a social science perspective on the American presidency. Our objective is to cut through common narratives provided by pundits, politicians, journalists, and the typical voter to understand when presidents are more (or less) likely to influence public policy. Put simply, when (and how) do presidents exercise power? Answers to this question are both complicated and difficult to evaluate.

This course is in the American subfield.
