Course Detail
Course Components:
Politics in Utah is both the same as in every American state, and yet also quite different from every other American state. Its differences are rooted in history, the culture of those who settled here and whose descendants still represent a large majority, and the demographic trends that influence politics today and tomorrow. This course will explore these historical, cultural, and demographic currents, and consider the organization and operation of Utah state and local governments. Students will gain a deep understanding of the functioning of Utah governments now and the prospects for change.
