HUM 193 Understanding American Politics

Course Description

With the 2016 U.S. Presidential election approaching, Canadians are being bombarded by the politics of our neighbour to the south. Broaden your understanding of current events through a rich mixture of current events pieces, other readings, and discussions. You will be provided with the framework to understand ‘how we got here’ through a crash-course in American government. We will continue with discussions related to the key issues, personalities, and affiliations involved in the campaign. The electoral map will be a major focus as we approach election time.
