POL 150 First-Year Seminar: Perspectives on the Presidency (3 credits)
Many consider the President of the United States the most powerful leader in the world. Historians, journalists, political scientists, and, of course, American citizens focus their attention on the President. This course endeavors to understand the President and the executive office from several different perspectives. Learning about the President in this fashion allows new college students to "see for yourself" how multi-faceted the search for knowledge can be. This course seeks not only to teach students about the Presidency, but to give students a more nuanced perspective on American politics and a window into learning at the college level. Not for major credit.
