This one semester required course explores the structure and functions of our government, as well as what it means to be an active citizen. Specific topics include our Constitutional foundations, the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches, political processes, and citizenship. Current events are used extensively to help students understand the practical application of our government in action.
