POSC 201: American Government — Federal (3 Credits)
This course is designed to empower the student by offering an understanding of the federal system of their American government, how it works, and where students might inject themselves into the process to gain better control over their government. Heavy emphasis is placed upon the U.S. Constitution and the limits placed upon the government by it and the protections afforded to the citizens through this historic legal document. In addition to the federal government, this course covers the form and functions of our state government and of counties, cities and villages and incorporates the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Practical applications to medicine, law and business will be made.
POSC 210: Introductory Comparative Politics (3 Credits)
This course is a comparative study of the political systems, ideologies and institutions of selected European, Latin American, Asian and African states. In this course, we will give special attention to the dynamics of political change (including contemporary “transition to democracy”) and their relationship to economic and social development.
POSC 211: International Relations (3 Credits)
An introduction to international politics and those forces which produce conflict and cooperation. Attention is given to the international political process with regard to economics, diplomacy, military power, international law and the role of international organization.
