Latino Community in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area (3) This course takes an in-depth look at the Latino community, numbering about 13 percent of the population in the Washington, DC metropolitan region. Students examine the historical and political factors that brought a massive migration of Central Americans to the DC area in the 1980s and bring it forward to the current period when unaccompanied minors fleeing violence in Central America who reached the US/Mexico border are being reunited with family members in this region. The violence they fled, their journeys, and the challenges faced locally are explored. Students analyze and research the critical issues that affect Latinos today, such as immigration status, affordable housing, educational access, employment, cultural identity and mental health issues. Through community-based learning (also known as service-learning) with local nonprofit community agencies, students deepen their learning of these issues. A neighborhood visit to Mt Pleasant, guest speakers, interviews with community members, films, and cultural events further bring course content and class readings to life. As a part of this course, students will engage with a nonprofit agency or school in the D.C. area to apply their course knowledge. Meets with AMST-340 001.

Africa (3) This course does not cover every aspect of African politics, but instead focuses on a few of the more challenging problems and possibilities found on the continent. How did a continent whose kingdoms and states once dominated vast trading networks stretching to northern Europe and China become the economic equivalent of a giant on its knees? Questions explored include the aspects of Africa's history have shaped its present political and economic situation, what hold democracy can hope to have on countries known for their oppressive one-party governments, unequal gender relations and ethnic stratification, and how HIV/AIDS and globalization are changing Africa's future today.

Women, Politics and the Media (1) This class acquaints students with important issues dealing with women, politics, and the media. Women make up only 19 percent of Congress and only 24.8 percent of state legislators nationwide. Women are also underrepresented on the campaign trail as political journalists. Critics argue that news stories about women candidates, elected officials, and women's issues often fail to generate news coverage, and when they are covered by media, they receive distinctly different coverage. Students in this class weigh the evidence surrounding these assertions by investigating the academic research, hearing first-hand accounts from experts in the field, and looking at real-life examples to examine the differences in political coverage.
