The outcome of the 2020 elections will potentially impact U.S. public policy for the rest of this century. The U.S. electorate will be choosing between radically divergent paths on critical issues such as climate change, income equality and health care. How will the COVID-19 pandemic impact the election? As citizens, we will be challenged to make sense of what may well be the most consequential federal, state and local elections of our life time.
This program is intended for those who are looking to develop the skills and knowledge needed to consciously engage in civic life and meaningfully contribute professionally and personally to make our communities better. We will work together to apply the disciplines of media, geography, performance, psychology, and social relations to analyze and learn from events and actions taken before and after the November 3 rd , 2020 election.
To successfully participate in this program, students will need a quiet, personal workspace, and a computer with internet access and audio/video capability. Students can expect our remote teaching to be around 4.5 hours of synchronous (scheduled) coursework per week, using Zoom and Canvas. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous (in person or remote) participation if conditions require.
