PSPA 1003 - Political Controversies♦


(5 cr.) The Declaration of Independence asserts that all men are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; though, society continues to argue over how to guarantee these inalienable rights. In this course, students apply the principles of the U.S. Constitution and examine several modern political controversies, such as same-sex marriage, the role of the media in society, the debate over gun control, and others in light of their relationship to larger enduring political debates. Students employ course concepts to practical applications on a variety of topics, such as critiquing argument, protecting personal privacy, ensuring equal opportunity, predicting debate outcomes, and evaluating profiling, among others.
