Students in Comparative Government and Politics will study the conceptual tools necessary to develop an understanding of some of the world’s diverse political structures and practices. Students will examine both specific countries and their governments and general concepts used to interpret the political relationships and institutions found in virtually all national politics. Students will study the governmental systems of Great Britain, Nigeria, China, Russia, Iran and Mexico, providing a foundation for developing paradigms of different types of political systems. Using these countries as case studies, students will also seek to understand the political implications of different levels of economic development and globalization.
