Political Science | Intro to Intl Relations
Y109 | 29674 | Thompson

2nd 8 weeks

This course is an introduction to international politics.  No
previous background is assumed.  We will examine the historical
evolution of international politics and how its structures and
processes interact to shape the world in which we live.  Equal
attention will be paid to patterns of conflict and cooperation,
international political economy, and international policy problems.
Evaluation will proceed along customary lines.  There will be more
than one midterm exam at assigned times in addition to some
participation in simulation activities and a final.  All exam
material will be revealed prior to testing.  The point is not to
catch you unaware but rather to focus and facilitate your digestion
of the course material.
