    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was tough for me but at the same time, it was very helpful. I am pursuing a degree in accounting, and I was not aware how much politics was involved with accounting. This course is a must for any major.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include the powers that the different branches of service have and how those branches are maintained, so they do not overstep their powers. I learned about the basis for the American National Government and its structure. This course also went over how and why the Electoral College was created. I found out of about the various voting laws, and the role media plays in the election process.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, you must thoroughly read any and all required resources as well as perform additional research for scholarly sources to support information you are sharing. It is also imperative to provide real world experiences as well as how it affects your life. The quizzes throughout this course require you to read and understand while you are going through your books. Therefore, you should take many notes and simplify what you are reading to ensure you fully understand. I cannot stress studying and reading enough. It is a must.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a study of the national government of the United States, including its roots in the Constitution. The course begins by outlining the political ideologies that inspired the U.S. political system. Students explore the structure and process of the federal system and the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government to learn the expressed and implied powers of each branch. Having gained an appreciation for the key actors and responsibilities within the government, students will learn how politicians campaign, participate in political parties, and are elected to office and how the voters respond. Political processes and the factors that influence these processes are recurring themes throughout the course. The summative assessment focuses on critically analyzing the primary features of the American national government. The course design includes the use of multimedia, spirited dialogue in the discussion forums, readings, research, and written assignments. Students are prompted to enrich the discussions while enhancing their library search skills by selecting from a broad array of pre-selected articles available from the Ashford University Library.

    Course highlights:

    Explain the historical and constitutional basis for the American Government’s structure. 2.Define the system of checks and balances..Examine the role of public opinion, media, and special interest groups with respect to public policy and elections. Analyze our voting system and the election process.Evaluate policymaking and government program administration.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is a survey of government at the national level. Emphasis is placed on the constitutional basis of American government, federalism, the sources and forms of political behavior, the operation of the three branches of government, and the making of national policy.
