POL 1914: Generation Now: Young Adult Political Action in America

3 CreditsFreshman Seminar

There is no shortage of challenging and contentious issues with which young adult Americans are confronting today. In this course, our focus will not be on debating these issues, but instead on exploring the translation of political goals into policy change on the ground. We will begin with the historical under-representation of young adult Americans in the political space, and the ways in which American political institutions structure, support, and inhibit young adult action in the linked spaces of politics and policy. We will explore ways in which individuals have challenged and reshaped these norms and institutions in the effort to make lasting social change. Along the way, we will learn the tools of policy analysis, with which students will be able to act more effectively in the American policy space.
