PSCI 290 - Investigating Politics


Credits: (3)
Majors and Minors only. This course should be taken in the sophomore year and it is a prerequisite to PSCI 360 Political Analysis (3) and PSCI 498 Senior Seminar (3). This is the first research and writing intensive course in the three-course methods sequence of the political science and international studies majors. In this course, we will review types and quality of sources and we will learn to find and use primary and secondary sources appropriately. The course is strongly centered on the use of hot-topic current events to get students to see the value of research skills and put those skills to use in various styles of political writing. Prerequisite(s): Sophomore status required.
