Course Description

IN PERSON: Historically, North Carolina may accurately claim to be one of the more prominent swing states in America, from the Roosevelt Democrats of the 1930s through the 1970s to the Reagan Republicans of the 1980s, with lots of "swing" in between. This course will address the forces behind this phenomenon. Classes will include lectures, notable contemporary political guest speakers who still occupy the stage and political/election videos to create the right amount of "color" to enhance the experience. Students will understand how North Carolina politics really works, and perhaps have a field trip to Raleigh. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.

Max enrollment: 24.
