POL 209 Advising the President: A Simulation (3 credits)

A January intersession course for Social Science GER credit which analyzes the Contemporary American Presidency with special attention to the use of power, the role of personality, the nature of decision making, and the relationships between the executive and the media, interest groups, and public opinion. Students will participate in two simulations, one as advisors to the sitting president and the other as aides to a hypothetical female candidate running for the office in the upcoming election cycle.
