“This course introduces students to basic models of social choice and
game theory to understand how societies make political decisions.  We
will study theories of individual and group decision making,
collective choice, and social dilemmas.  We will also study how
institutions, or the political context in which decisions are made,
affect group choices.   Applications include the study of
congressional politics, intergovernmental relations, and
parliamentary democracies.

Prerequisites:  Students are required to have taken at least one
course each in political science and economics (E201 Introduction to
Microeconomics is especially recommended).”
