Civil Liberties
GOVT 250
Spring 2012
Section: 01  

This course, the politics of civil liberties, introduces students to a uniquely American contribution (one that other Western democracies have freely emulated) to the practice of politics: the written specification of individual liberties and rights that citizens possess against the state. Civil liberties is not, however, a course on law. It is instead a course in political science that has as its subject the relationship of law to some of the most fundamental questions of politics. Topics covered will include privacy, due process, equal protection, freedom of expression, and freedom of religion.

Essential Capabilities: Effective Citizenship, Interpretation
this course enhances the stated capabilities, as well as several others, and makes one a better, more complete human being.
