Political Science | Intro to American Politics
Y103 | 3386 | Bianco


This course is an introduction to American national politics. The
central premise is that nothing in politics happens by accident 
everything you see is the result of the choices people make.  The
goal is to understand American politics by examining these choices
and their consequences.  The secondary emphasis is on facts, both to
provide basic information about American politics and to demonstrate
that there is evidence behind the theories and arguments presented
in the class.  The class will be ruthlessly contemporary,
emphasizing the political issues, campaigns, and controversies that
are part of our everyday life.
