1 THE SPRING PLAT FORM M A R I S T C O L L E G E P O L I T I C A L S C I E N C E C O U R S E S 100- L e v e l C o u r s e s S P R I N G POSC 110 American National Government Gaeke, MR 9:30-10:45 Charter, TF 12:30-1:45 TBA, MR 2:00-3:15 Eckert (two sections), MW 5:00-6:15pm or Online This course is designed to introduce you to the American political system. We will learn about the major institutions, actors, and interests that guide and constrain national politics. We will: explore how ideas such as democracy, liberty, and equality shaped the constitutional framework of American government; examine forms of and influences on political participation in the U.S.; analyze the key actors and institutions that constitute American government; and, finally, ask important questions about the future of American politics. As we learn about these aspects of the American political system, we will encounter a variety of viewpoints and perspectives, which you will be asked to critically analyze. Most importantly, you will develop and articulate your own opinions. You will be encouraged to go beyond the concepts introduced in class to reflect on how they relate to your life and your role as a participant in the U.S. political system. To do this, we will focus on improving your critical thinking, writing, and oral presentation skills. POSC 111 Introduction to Comparative Politics Kaknes (two sections), TF 9:30-10:45 or TR 5:00-6:15pm Comparative politics is the study of countries domestic politics. It is comparative because we often identify key questions, variables, and reasons for similarities and differences by comparing countries to one another. In this class we will learn some basic tools of political science and lay the foundation for exploring diverse issues of politics. Some specific questions we will explore include: What different political ideologies exist? Why are some countries democratic and others not? What are the effects of different democratic institutions? Why are some countries rich and some poor? Why do some of these characteristics change, or why don t they? The information presented should help students better understand current world events. Second, students should gain awareness of ongoing debates within political science and of the tools of social science. Finally, the course should further the development of students abilities to evaluate arguments and qualitative and quantitative evidence, and their capacities to express their own sound arguments effectively.

2 100- L e v e l C o u r s e s POSC 112 Introduction to Political Theory Myers (two sections), TR 11-12:15pm or TR 3:30-4:45pm This course seeks to introduce students to the political ideas that have shaped western political systems. More specifically, the course is organized around the centrality of civil society to democracy. The classic thinkers presented are explored with the goal of understanding not only key concepts about the individual, community and the state, but also about the significant relationship between civil society and a flourishing polity. The course is divided into four parts: Civil Society in the Classical and Religious Traditions; Early Modern Approaches to Civil Society; Late and Contemporary Approaches to Civil Society; and Critiques of Civil Society. POSC 113 International Relations Pupcenoks, M 11-12:15 and W 9:30-10:45 This course provides a general introduction to the study of international relations. The first part of this course will focus on the history and nature of the international system, international relations theories, conceptual frameworks and major events of the Cold War and the post-cold War era. The second part will explore some of the major issues in international relations including: nationalism, arms control, nuclear nonproliferation, transnational crime, terrorism, ethnic conflict, international political economy, development (political, social and economic), population and migration, resource issues, international law and organization, human rights and global ethics a true survey. Although the focus of this course is on concepts and frameworks of analysis, an important component of each lecture will be application of these concepts to current world events.

3 1 0 0 & L e v e l C o u r s e s POSC 120 The Role of the Interviewer (one credit) Miringoff, W 6:30-9pm The Role of the Interviewer focuses on a central component of survey research: data collection. The course emphasizes the interview process, including the role of the interviewer, interviewing techniques, and interviewer bias. An introduction to research methodology, key concepts, and the various applications of survey research will also be included. Different modes of data collection will also be discussed and assessed. This course is in the American subfield. POSC 211 American State and Local Politics Applebee, TF 9:30-10:45 This course offers an overview of state and local government and politics. It includes attention to New York State, the urban politics of New York City and attention to representative county and town governments in the mid-hudson area. The social, economic, and political context within which state and local politics and policy making occurs will be covered. The course will examine linkage mechanisms between citizens and government, including elections, interests groups, and other forms of participation. Actors and institutions involved in policymaking at these levels and at the national level will be studied. Prerequisite: POSC 110. This course is in the American subfield. General Advising Advice & Best Practices International Relations (113) is usually offered only in fall semesters. Intro to Comparative Politics (111), Intro to Political Theory (112), and Scope & Methods (235) are usually offered only in spring semesters. Plan on taking Scope & Methods as a sophomore. You should take it before Capping. Its prerequisites are sophomore standing or above, POSC 101 or 111, and POSC 110. We recommend taking Statistics (MATH 130); take it before Scope & Methods. Since our political theorists teach Capping, take at least one political theory course before Capping, so you understand how they approach the discipline. You should keep your notes and work (with our feedback) from all your classes. You will find yourself wanting to refer to them and even to reference them in subsequent courses, and having your work helps us with recommendation letters. We also strongly recommend you keep the books in your major, especially from introductory courses, again for future reference. At the very least, photocopy the glossaries from your intro textbooks. Special Topics (ST) courses are simply courses that are not listed in the College s Course Catalog, usually because they are courses that have not been taught at Marist in the past.

We will examine some of the most intractable issues that have come before the Supreme Court in an effort to consider how we as a polity should balance individual liberties and rights with other values such as community morality, public order, and equality. In an effort to explore these themes, we will address issues such as affirmative action, pornography regulation, the right to privacy, and the need to accommodate religious minorities. Students should come to class prepared to participate, to challenge the cases and readings, and to develop their own informed view of the place of judicially guaranteed rights and liberties in the American polity.

8 400- L e v e l C o u r s e POSC 477 Capping: Law & Morality Eckert, MR 2:00-3:15 What is the relationship between law, morality and justice? Upon what, if any, moral principles does law stand? Can we have a just political system without an appeal to controversial moral arguments? Can law articulate universal principles that extend to different genders, races, cultures, classes, nationalities and traditions? How does law resolve the tension between rights and liberties as well as democracy versus the rule of law? How do economic conditions influence the possibility of achieving justice? These are the difficult questions that we will attempt to address throughout the semester. In discussing these questions, the course takes an interdisciplinary approach.
