    In the American Politics Academy, you’ll take an in-depth look at the three branches of government through a blend of lectures and debate exercises.

    You’ll learn about the important role that political parties, public opinion, and special interest groups can have on shaping political behavior and decisions while exploring how America’s changing culture impacts political movements and, ultimately, federal, state, and local policies. You’ll have opportunities to hear from key elected officials, Capitol Hill staff, lobbyists, and policymakers who will join class discussions on congressional campaigns, legislative priorities, and emerging national issues.
