POLSĀ 375. Contemporary Political Issues. 3 Hours.

This course is designed to develop your understanding of the larger political world and the issues facing it in the 21st century. Drawing on theories and concepts from various disciplines, we will expand on how political issues are defined, constructed and addressed at multiple levels of society. Specifically, we will look at various political issues and policies facing the United States, including but not limited to: crime, ecology, inequalities, health care and the family. We will also set those issues in their larger global context, address the impact of that context and the proposed possible outcomes for the future.
