GVAA 702 State and Local Governments

Academic Year

In this course, students will learn about the government institutions that have the most immediate impact on their constituents: state and local governments. The course will prepare students to understand how laws and policies are made at the state and local level, and what happens when there is conflict between state and local governments, and between federal and subfederal governments. The course will also provide perspective on how state and local governments shape their communities, including their impact on racial segregation and other forms of inequality.
