This course is intended to provide a brief overview of how the United States is governed as a basis for further coursework as a graduate student at the Wagner School. At the end of this course, it is expected that students will understand the: process through which the current system of governance in America was developed; branches of the federal government, including their powers and composition; election process and the role of political parties and interest groups; dominant US political ideologies; and general functions of state and local governments.
