PLS 339 Comparative Democratization

Have you been wondering what makes a country a democracy? Would you like to learn more about why some countries have been more successful with democratization while others still have authoritarian regimes? 

Then PLS 339 Comparative Democratization is the class for you! It's offered fall semester 2014, on Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:30-5:45 p.m. It's open to students who have either taken PLS 103 or have junior standing.

For PLS majors and minors, this is a comparative politics course. It also fulfills an elective for IR majors and minors, and it's a General Education Theme course. In this class, we discuss countries from all over the world and focus our learning on more recent cases of democratization and the strengthening of authoritarianism.
