Requirements

The most basic requirement for this course is that students attend class regularly and come to class prepared. This means that students prepare carefully for class, having done all of that day's assigned reading. Most class sessions will be interactive, so you should come ready to discuss! Attendance in class is mandatory. One's participation grade will suffer significantly after two absences.

Note: All work is due in class on the specific due dates. Extentions are rarely given and never arranged after the fact. If you have an emergency make arrangements before the due date. All late work will be penalized 1/3 of one letter grade per day. Work handed in more than 10 days late will receive a zero (0). it is very difficult to pass this class with any grade of zero.

Note on Academic Honesty: All work must be that of individual students. Whenever you use outside sources of information in your research, you must cite your sources properly. All papers submitted in this course should employ the American Political Science Association citation method as outlined in the Style Manual for Political Science. Papers submitted without complete citations will not be graded. Students caught cheating will receive an F in the course and will be reported to the Dean of Arts and Sciences for further discipline.
