Course Description: This course equips students with some of the skills necessary to begin formulating their own political opinions. Students are introduced to the idea of studying politics, both domestic and international, as an academic discipline, and to some of the key academic conventions and standards that are important to the discipline: the idea of evidence-based argument, for example, and the idea of ethical scholarship. This course also explores the formation of the modern state system and interrogates the conceptualization of the state that informs much contemporary theory and practice in politics at the national and international level. A substantial part of this course introduces the main theoretical traditions that animate the study of politics and international relations. One of the central messages of the course is that different theoretical approaches generate different images of the world that build on particular assumptions.
