This field school course will focus on the politics of states and regional organizations in a specific region of the international system. Through lectures and on-line activities delivered before departure and during a field trip through the region chosen, students will come to understand the differing types of politic behaviour and activities within states and between states and international organizations in a specific region, including the historical, social, cultural, geographic and international contexts in which those states and organizations exist. Students will also come to understand the methods, typologies, theories, and concepts used in the comparative study of politics as applied to the region studied.
Completion of POL 100 or 102 are recommended
