POLS 2300 - Introduction to Comparative Politics

Arts & Sciences
Political systems are not created equally. The reality of globalized markets dictates that today’s business professional understands our world in a global context. Students will study the nature by which different structures of government materialize in comparative political systems. Why do certain countries establish rich parliamentary democracies while others remain largely autocratic? Key features and functions of political systems are analyzed and compared by cross-referencing states that are diverse geographically, developmentally and ideologically. Students will examine case studies in regions such as Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the former Soviet Union.
