PSC 105 provides students with a foundation in the major themes of political science. Students will leave this course with a better appreciation of the ideas, actors and institutions that shape their everyday life. This newfound knowledge will not only fortify students in their pursuit of the sub-disciplines of political science such as comparative politics, political theory, and international relations, but also prove valuable in the study of business, criminology, philosophy, social work, and history among others. The ultimate goal of this course is to help students begin the exploration of a vastly complex and interrelated world through the insightful lens of the ‘master discipline’.
