Student learning goals
See course web page at link below.
General method of instruction
Mix of lecture, small group activities, and class discussion.
Students should have had at least one introductory course in political science at the lower division level. A previous course on American government or comparative politics would be ideal. This course complements BIS 324 (International Political Economy) and provides a foundation for students interested in further work in public policy.
Class assignments and grading
Mix of in-class exams; problem sets; short essays.
