Course Detail


Sem in American Politics

J. Putnam

This course is an intensive three-part, deep-dive into rules in several areas
of American politics. The three units will explore the rules behind the presidential nomination process, the rules governing lawmaking in the Senate and House, and the rules and laws regarding the redistricting process on the state level. The intent is to develop a qualitative knowledge of those rules and their impact in each area, but to also relate that in a more overarching sense to the power (and its limits) embedded in the rules and process in the context of the American governmental system.
