African Politics

PSCI 300 - African Politics

The goal of this course is to introduce you to African politics and society from the perspective of a political scientist. To do this, we will cover a good deal of history from the pre-colonial period to the present day. The approach will be thematic, using a comparative method that will pay particular attention to a handful of countries that embody the successes and challenges facing Africa's political development. By the end of the semester you will have a better understanding of African politics and society, how political scientists approach political development in this corner of the world, and become more interested in international affairs in our shrinking world.
