POL 110 - Power and Politics in America

3 credit(s)
Area/Group Designation: American Politics and Government
This survey course provides the foundation for understanding American government as it exists at the beginning of the 21st century. It deals with the organic background and contemporary reality of our federal republic governed under a written constitution. The established structures of government-Congress, president, bureaucracy, and courts-are studied, together with the less formal political structures, such as public opinion, parties, pressure groups, media, and voting-all of which act to grant our government the authority to act. The policies emerging from the systematic interplay of forces from within the government itself, from the states and the people of the nation, and from other nations of the world are studied and evaluated. This course fulfills a general education requirement.
