PSI 216 - Public Opinion and Citizen Action (3)

(Cross-referenced with PSY 216 .)
Where do our political attitudes come from? How do they affect our participation in the political system? In this class we'll explore the biological, psychological, and sociodemographic roots of public opinion, and how those attitudes result in citizen behaviors from voting to protests. Specific topics may include public opinion, political participation, voting behavior, candidate selection, media influence, and campaigns. Upon completion, students will demonstrate an understanding of the attitudes and behaviors of the American electorate and the basics of public opinion polling.
