Campaigns and Elections

GOVT 232
Fall 2018
Section: 01  
Certificates: Civic Engagement

This course introduces students to the style and structure of American campaigns and how they have changed over time. We also consider academic theories and controversies surrounding campaign "effects" and whether or not parties, media, campaigns, and elections function as they are supposed to according to democratic theory. Students will read, discuss, and debate classic and new scholarship in the field of political and electoral behavior. This class may also include an exit poll assignment where students help design, field, and analyze a poll conducted on Election Day.
