In this introduction to American politics we will explore the foundations of government in the US, the political institutions that govern our society, and the ways in which people interact with the government.

Course Requirements:

Evaluation will be based on a variety of activities, including quizzes, papers, exams, and participation in discussion sections.

Class Format:

Lectures will be in-person. In addition to two lectures per week, you will meet once a week in person in a discussion section led by a GSI. In these sections you will have the opportunity to discuss the readings, ask any questions you might have about lectures or readings, and address topics in more depth than the lectures permit.
