American Government in the 21st Century

3 Unit(s)

Every citizen in the United States is impacted by the decisions made in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. The depth and breadth of that impact is difficult to understand without knowledge of the historical context of the formation of national government and its evolution since its inception. This course seeks to provide knowledge of that context, addressing issues of politics, power, and culture, as we gain greater understanding of how government works in the 21st century.
