Political Psychology (3) This course explores fundamental questions such as explaining how and why people act as they do in politics, the underpinnings of political preferences, how these preferences change, and how they affect political choices, by applying psychology to politics. The class discusses theories about human personality, cognition, emotion, and social influence. These approaches are applied to the study of political issues ranging from the development of the political "self" to media effects, political leadership and decision-making, ethnic and international conflict, altruism, terrorism, and genocide. In each of these domains, how personal and environmental factors combine to produce political outcomes is explored. The readings draw on experimental research, surveys, and historical studies and discussion of these studies is the basis of the lectures. Meets with GOVT-622 001.

As a part of this course, students will engage with a nonprofit agency or school in the D.C. area to apply their course knowledge. Latino Community in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area (3) This course takes an in-depth look at the Latino community, numbering about 13 percent of the population in the Washington, DC metropolitan region. Students examine the historical and political factors that brought a massive migration of Central Americans to the DC area in the 1980s and bring it forward to the current period when unaccompanied minors fleeing violence in Central America who reached the US/Mexico border are being reunited with family members in this region. The violence they fled, their journeys, and the challenges faced locally are explored. Students analyze and research the critical issues that affect Latinos today, such as immigration status, affordable housing, educational access, employment, cultural identity and mental health issues. Through community-based learning (also known as service-learning) with local nonprofit community agencies, students deepen their learning of these issues. A neighborhood visit to Mt Pleasant, guest speakers, interviews with community members, films, and cultural events further bring course content and class readings to life. Meets with AMST-340 001.

Political History from Pre-Colonialism to the Present (3) Examines the political development of African states south of the Sahara Desert. The course begins by looking at the polity of the traditional societies in tropical Africa. This is followed by a focus on the Berlin Conference of 1884 and the "Scramble for Africa" by European nations, which led to the massive colonization of the world's second largest continent, and exploration of how the Versailles Treaty of 1919 changed the colonial structure of Africa. Students then examine the decolonization struggles, the leaders of the newly independent states, the era of kleptocratic regimes, and the wave of democratization during the earliest years of the twenty-first century.

Political Psychology (3) This course explores fundamental questions such as explaining how and why people act as they do in politics, the underpinnings of political preferences, how these preferences change, and how they affect political choices, by applying psychology to politics. The class discusses theories about human personality, cognition, emotion, and social influence. These approaches are applied to the study of political issues ranging from the development of the political "self" to media effects, political leadership and decision-making, ethnic and international conflict, altruism, terrorism, and genocide. In each of these domains, how personal and environmental factors combine to produce political outcomes is explored. The readings draw on experimental research, surveys, and historical studies and discussion of these studies is the basis of the lectures. Meets with GOVT-422 001.
