The United States is currently in the middle of a heated Presidential election.  This course will follow this election through its final months, looking at the candidates, the debates, the House and Senate races, the voters, and all the vast paraphernalia of a modern political campaign.  Students will investigate the election from a wide range of perspectives - political, economic, business, and historical – in order to understand not only the election, but its context. The role of the media - both traditional and social – will be analyzed. After election night, course will evaluate the outcome to understand what may happen to America going forward.
