Spring 2015 not offered
This discussion-based course considers core readings from each of the four political science subfields: political theory, comparative politics, international politics, and American politics. Core questions that cut across each of the subfields (What is the nature of good governance? How should conflict be managed? Who should rule?) will provide the course's focus.
The course is designed as preparation for taking the honors exam during the Spring semester (the exam is due on the date that theses are due) and is paced accordingly. Students are admitted into the course on a POI basis according to the honors program process described on the Government Department web site. For more information, see http://www.wesleyan.edu/gov/honors.html.
