Course Description

PPOL 180D
Minority Political Behavior
Spring

This course is designed to survey how different minority groups participate and behave in American politics. We will begin this course with an overview of theories about why social identities influence the way certain individuals participate in politics and how their attitudes are formed. As the United States is quickly becoming a minority-majority country, especially with regard to race and ethnicity, major parties attempt to incorporate minority groups into their respective coalitions. This course covers racial and ethnic minorities, gender, LGBT people, immigrants, and former felons.
2017-18 One time only.
