Notes
First-Year Seminars are open to all students during their first year at UMBC. Description: This course will introduce students to the concept of ideological debates as a political tool, focusing on the techniques interest groups involved in ¿hot button¿ political issues use to define those issues in ways that promote their desired policy outcome. Particular emphasis will be placed on economic issues related to financial literacy, such as the Federal Reserve, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the national debt. The course will utilize sociological tools as well as historical techniques of textual analysis to assess how different groups seek to define ¿America¿ in different, often contradictory ways.
