POL 341 - Modern Political Thought

3 credit(s)
Area/Group Designation: Political Theory
We live in a world powerfully shaped by political ideas. We use words like rights, social contract, equality, freedom, values, and power as regular parts of our political discourse. But who first crafted these ideas? What did they mean? And how should we approach them today? From Machiavelli to Nietzsche, this course explores the political theorists of the modern era whose revolutionary ideas inspired changes that still reverberate across the global political landscape. This course satisfies a writing intensive requirement when listed as POL 341W.
Prerequisite(s): Sophomore or higher standing or permission of instructor.
