M.A. Proseminar

, 4 pts, GR5000


This course introduces students to the different subfields of the discipline by presenting various perspectives on one key topic in political science. Throughout the course, both theoretical and empirical debates surrounding the study of democracy are explored.

Although the specific topic may change from year to year, the goal and structure of the course will remain the same: to contribute to the students' understanding of an important topic in political science and discuss it through the lens of the different subfields: American politics, comparative politics, international relations, and political theory. By doing so, students will also learn the technical language, important concepts, and different methodological approaches of each subfield.

Please note that this course is only for students in the Political Science Department's M.A. Program.
