Have you ever wondered why American politics functions on a two party system? Or why there are three different branches in US government? When someone pleads the fifth, what does that really mean? What did the writers of the Constitution intend for its government? What does someone mean when they talk about bureaucracy? And why are there so many court systems? American Government introduces students to the fundamental concepts of our American Government, such as: the fundamental ideas behind the Constitution, Civil Liberties and Civil Rights, Political Groups, Public Interest Groups, and much more.

Upon completion students will understand the relationship between communication and the Constitution, the evolution of the Constitution, the necessity of an amendment system and the most important amendments from the fifth amendment to the 13th amendment to the 21st amendment. Students will also understand the relationship between political culture, socialization, and public opinion as well as the evolution and necessity of political parties and our complicated court system. And finally, students will be exposed to recent domestic, foreign, and national security policies.
