Expectations and Requirements
This is an upper-level Politics and Government course. Students are to have had POL 105 as well as some exposure to international or comparative politics.
The most important requirement for this course is that students attend class regularly, having done the assigned reading for the day, and arrive ready to discuss. In class, students may be asked to summarize arguments, critique articles, or role play as author. A quick skimming of the reading, therefore, is unlikely to be adequate preparation.
Students are also expected to treat each other, as well as the professor, with every respect. Since class meetings will primarily be discussion oriented, it is imperative that we all create an open and non-threatening classroom atmosphere.
The graded requirements for the course are as follows:
