American Government Seminar: Environmental Policy and Politics

Using environmental politics and policy as a guiding frame, this seminar introduces students to the key political concepts, institutions, roles, and behaviors that characterize the constitutional system and political culture of the United States; in addition, students gain familiarity with the institutions, agreements, and challenges associated with global environmental policy making.  Maximizing our proximity to both the state and nation’s capitals, students interface with local, state, national, and international environmental leaders in Annapolis, Washington, DC, and beyond.  Students wishing to take the AP American Government and Politics exam will be provided with additional tutorial support.
