PLSC 101: American Politics
Professor John Williams
TTh 11:30am  / LSC

The American political system has proved highly resilient, despite many pressures for change.  Why is this so, and what changes might yet be expected?  Students will explore these and other questions in this course, which is a foundation for more advanced study of the American political system.  The course will study the most important structures (legislative, executive, and judicial) of the U.S. Government and the political processes of the wider system.  It will rely heavily on class discussions, interspersed with occasional presentations.  Students will participate in between-class discussions with one another and the instructor using Blackboard and will become familiar with resources available on the internet.  The campaigns for the 2008 elections will be followed closely. This course is an option in the "Societal and Cultural Knowledge" section of the core curriculum.
