Connections 20033. History and Politics of United States Foreign Policy
The Cold War and post-Cold War history studied in HIST 206 are intimately connected to U.S. foreign policy and the foreign policy studied in POLS 229 forms and shapes the substance of much of the history of this period. Students taking these paired courses will be exposed to the historical analysis of critical events and documents that have had and continue to have an impact on the formulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy. They will learn about the political structures and relationships that led to the formulation of foreign policy over time, and they will have a chance to debate and critique policies, thus developing their critical thinking and analytical skills.
