    Summer Session 1 (May 16 - June 10)
    What are the origins of the modern American political institutions, such as Congress, the Presidency, and the political parties? What types of factors influence the choices voters make? Drawing from political science research, as well as contemporary events, this class intends to introduce students to the foundations of American government and politics. We will examine the linkages that connect political institutions, politicians, and ordinary citizens. Finally, we will explore how these forces might influence the 2016 Presidential and Congressional elections.
