Special Topics: Political Leadership
Monday, 11:30-1:30, SSC 4255
Open to Majors as of July 21st

This class introduces students to the study of leadership. We spend much time learning about leaders who, for good or bad purposes, manage to mobilize the support of large organizations, whole communities or entire societies toward a specific goal.  We are interested in what type of people become leaders, what sorts of resources they possess, why people follow leaders, why bad leadership happens, and how leaders manage their power.

Special Topics: Comparing Women’s Political Leadership in the Provinces: Kathleen Wynne, Christy Clark and Rachel Notley
Wednesday, 1:30-3:30, LWH 1227
Open to Majors as of July 21st

This course compares provincial political structures through a feminist lens, especially with regard to the premier’s office and the party system. The course centers on two questions: why have female Canadian political leaders been successful recently in rising to lead some provincial governments in Canada; and once in office, how do they exercise leadership?

Special Topics: What is Democracy and How do We Study It?
Tuesday, 1:30-3:30, SSC 4255
Open to Majors as of July 21st

This course is designed to introduce students to different approaches to political science analysis.  This will be accomplished through a series of lectures taught by different professors, each tackling the same question:  “What is democracy and how do we study it?”  Each lecture will focus on a specific approach to the question, will consider the conceptualization and operationalization of the relevant ideas, and detail the method of analysis used to study democracy in that way.  The benefit of this course is that students will be able to understand and compare the differences between approaches to political science and the conclusions that they produce.

Special Topics: Methodology
Thursday, 11:30-1:30, SSC 4103
This course is designed to help students understand how data are gathered, managed and analyzed in Political Science. Part of the course will be aimed at consumption of quantitative work – how to read articles and books with statistical components without skipping the methodology section.  The second component of the course will encourage students to undertake their own statistical analyses.  The course will provide the relevant background and training in simple statistical analyses – difference of means tests and linear regression analysis.

Summer Courses

Note: In addition to the information outlined in the Distance Studies Program Guide on Online Courses, it is the responsibility of students registered in online courses in Political Science to ensure access to computer equipment that enables them to participate fully in all required parts of the online experience (e.g. discussion boards, chat rooms etc.). These are an important part of the course, and failure to participate due to a lack of access to computer facilities will not be considered grounds for appeal.
