POLS3050 - Amer Pol Parties/Elections

Fall 2023

Political parties and elections are essential to the structure of every modern democratic state. Though originally the American political system excluded parties, they quickly became integral to the US political order. This class studies their theoretical foundation, historical development, functions and organization. It introduces students to psephology, the study of elections, including realignment theory and critical election theory, theories of voting behavior, turnout, and civic duty. Students analyze contemporary approaches in the study of elections and produce their own approach.
