Class Details

The Millennial generation those born between the early 1980s and 2000s one of the most diverse in American history, and they are making waves in American politics. For example, if only people over the age of 30 voted in 2008, Romney would have won by 2 million votes rather than losing by 5 million. Young people are consequential in American politics (and across the globe). This course will examine shifts in American political dynamics and examine the role that Millennials play in reshaping the boundaries of politics in the United States. We will also examine the ways in which American political institutions influence the way Millennials view and participate in politics. Students in this course will have the opportunity to collect and analyze their own data about members of the Millennial generation in efforts to make their own conclusions about what we should expect for the future of American politics.
