Cognate Categories


Where do your opinions come from? Why do people vote? How do the actions of others influence the government? This cognate addresses these questions through various topics on political behavior including a basic survey of American Government, a course on conspiracy theories, an investigation of the process of running for elected office, a study of what political opinions are and where they come from, a seminar on why political participation is important & how it influences government, and a class on running experiments, one of the key ways political scientists learn about political behavior.
