American Government and Politics
GOVT 151 SP
An introduction to American national institutions and the policy process, the focus of this course is on the institutions and actors that make, interpret, and enforce our laws: Congress, the presidency, the courts, and
bureaucracy. The course will critically assess the perennial conflict over executive, legislative, and judicial power and the implications of the rise of the administrative state for a democratic order. This course is
specifically for first-year students.
