PSI 310 - Women and Power (3)


The course explores women's political movements, women in public office and women in leadership (public and private) both in the United States and abroad. The course will examine substantive representation versus descriptive representation and their intersection with the status of women under the law versus in practice. Upon completion, students will be able to: a) apply principles learned through studying evidence-based research  in order to understand historical and legal constraints to women and power in the political arena; b) articulate cultural, psychological and socioeconomic differences between the genders and the significance of these differences to women in politics; and c) use technology effectively in the research and delivery of information related to assignments.

Offered even spring term.
