Course: American Government
A comprehensive introduction to American government and politics—its foundations, institutions, organizations, and policies.
About this course
American politics has all the aspects of drama, but it has real meaning for people’s everyday lives.
What are the foundations of the U.S. political system? How do leading institutions such as the presidency and Congress operate? Where do public opinion, political parties, groups, and the media fit in? What explains America’s economic, social, and foreign policies?
If exploring these questions interests you, then this is the course for you. This course is an introduction to the U.S. government that draws on political science and cases—such as the Iraq invasion and health care reform—to explain how the U.S. government system works.
