POLS 2180 - The American Presidency


3 cr. 3 hr. Offered every other year

This course examines the origins and development of the American presidency from the eighteenth century to the present. It examines the executive branch of government and the development of the office in historical context. This enables us to examine the executive branch of government as it evolved in relation to the judicial and legislative branches of government in particular eras, to consider the role that contingency and individuals have had shaping the office, and to measure the evolution of the Presidency in times of war, amidst economic transformations, and in relation to public opinion and the media.
