Course Description

The purpose of the AP course in U.S. government and politics is to teach U.S. constitutional government based on principles of philosophy, political beliefs and behavior, political parties and interest groups, national institutions, policy processes, and law. Emphasis is given to the relationship of the citizen to the structure and function of the American constitutional system. The student will develop skills that enable them to assess and analyze American government and political systems work on a sophisticated level.

The AP U.S. Government and Politics course will give you an analytical perspective on government and politics in the United States. This course will include both the study of general concepts used to interpret U.S. politics and the analysis of specific examples. At the completion of this course you will know important facts, concepts, and theories pertaining to government and politics. You will understand typical patterns of political processes and their consequences (including the components of political trends and behavior, the principles used to explain or justify various government structures and procedures, and the political effects of these structures and procedures).
