POL 101D - U.S. Government and Politics, 4 credit hours


Whether you are paying attention or not, politics affects your life. Debates about citizenship, equality, and the role of government are more important than ever. In this course, students will learn about the founding of the American democracy and the Constitution, civil liberties and civil rights, public opinion and the media, elections and voting, Congress, the Presidency, our courts, and how diversity and demographic changes affect all of these things. Much of the course will be spent discussing how politics impacts you and how you can participate more effectively and make the world a better place. This course is a “users guide” for your government.
