POL 370 - Campaigns & Elections

Credits: 3

From candidate recruitment to the election aftermath, this course analyzes the roles of political parties, monetary contributions, the media, public opinion and other forces in determining how campaigns are run and who wins/loses. The electoral mechanisms (primary v. general elections, popular v. electoral votes, etc.) are also dissected to assess their ability to affirm meaningful citizen choice. Ultimately, students evaluate the power of campaigns and elections to renew, but also endanger, American democracy.
