Minor - Politics, Power and the Common Good

POLI 1006  Politics, Power and the Common Good


POLI 1005


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Political questions are everywhere. Why do I have to follow laws that I think are unfair? What can I do when government power conflicts with the practice of my individual rights? How can I fulfill my obligation as a citizen when it clashes with loyalty to my family? Disagreement about how to answer these kinds of questions animates political discussion and debate. Studying politics allow you to understand the way in which our politicians answer these questions, help define and direct our laws, political structures, institutions and ideas. It also provides you the necessary skills to challenge their answers and articulate your own informed and thoughtful responses.
