American Government and Politics - HONORS

Course Description

Critical examination of the contemporary and historical struggle for the development of democratic political institutions in the United States at the state, local, and national levels. Particular emphasis given to the conflict between disparate socioeconomic groups in the conduct of U.S. political life (e.g. traditional elites versus the historically (and currently) disenfranchised-- women, people of color, workers, immigrants, etc.) and the interrelationship among social equity, democracy and sustainable environmental conditions. As an honors course, the students will be expected to complete extra assignments to gain a deeper insight in American Government and Politics.
