Comparative Politics Courses

Unless otherwise indicated prerequisites for the following courses are PSC-111 or PSC-112 or sophomore standing.

200-level courses in comparative politics generally cover political issues that are regionally concentrated (such as Latin America, Europe, China, and the Middle East), or they focus on themes (such as democracy, nationalism, social movements) that are framed at a conceptual level accessible to students from across the college.

300-level courses in comparative politics have a special topics theme (women and politics, the Marxist political tradition, democratization, genocide, and Film) and/or a strong methodological component. The course materials are more conceptually and theoretically complex, and involve a more sophisticated set of intellectual problems.
