ABA 814 - American Politics and Governmental Organizations

This course will examine the politics, institutions and processes which occur at the federal, state and local level and the impact that our American system of government has on each of us. Ironically, most of the media and public attention is directed toward Washington, yet the decisions made by state and local governments have a greater impact on most people’s daily lives. The goal of this course is to provide an overview of the role and operation of the various governmental entities, to highlight the similarities and differences which occur at the local, county, state and federal level, and to review how these variations ultimately shape the politics, policies and outcomes which are achieved.
