PS 101 - Modern World Governments
Modern World Governments is an introductory class to the study of politics, intended to familiarize students with the history, political systems, practices, cultures, and institutions of various countries. By examining and comparing these countries the course will introduce the basic ideas, terminology, and debates in political science. The fundamental goals of the class are to expose students to the diversity of political systems in the modern world, teach students how to analyze politics in other countries, teach students to think critically, and through reflection gain a better understanding of their own political system. In an increasingly global world advancing our understanding of the politics, histories, and cultures outside out borders is crucial. This course will serve as foundation for those who want to study international relations or comparative politics.
