GOVT125 CM - The President and U.S. Foreign Policy

This course offers a political-historical view of how Washington, particularly the executive branch leadership, makes U.S. foreign policy. In practical terms, students will focus on the President as a leader and his interactions with the individuals who head the National Security Council, Congress, the State Department, the Department of Defense, and the intelligence community. In thematic terms, students will concentrate on the policies and politics that pertain to national security, diplomacy, development, defense, and intelligence. By the end of this seminar, students will understand the main domestic policymakers, institutions, political factors, and grand strategies that - all in a Washington, D.C., context - go into shaping American foreign policy. Taken as a part of the Washington Program . Letter grade only.
