POS 2425 - American Legislative Politics

Credit Hours: 3.0

Prerequisite(s): None
Corequisite(s): None

Students will explore the U.S. Congress; its role, its processes, its history, its members, the role the public has in electing and influencing its members, and problems that plague our contemporary Congress. There will be a significant focus on current events and controversies. The course also looks at state legislatures and the legislative systems in other countries. We will cover the basics for students who come in with little prior education about U.S. government and politics, while also addressing higher-level questions and concepts to encourage sophisticated thought. The course will also help to prepare those students who desire to participate in extracurricular opportunities such as the Model U.S. Senate and the Model Florida Legislature.
