Program Information

Do you have concerns about what motivates our public officials and how their decisions affect the average citizen? Do you have questions regarding the nature of “who gets what” as national, local and state governments decide issues of taxation, spending and constitutional matters? If so, you probably have at least a moderate interest in political science. Butler offers a variety of courses that probe the workings of the public realm. If you are concerned about what happens “inside the beltway” in Washington, D.C. and its impact on U.S. citizens, Butler offers a course in American Federal Government. If you have questions regarding decisions made in Topeka and other levels of government closer to your home, the course in State and Local Government may best suit your interests. If you have questions about politics in the global environment, consider the course in International Relations.
