This course is a seminar devoted to the careful study of democratic theory which ties together the various disciplines learned throughout the International Studies major: history, political philosophy, ancient and modern politics, and economic theory and practice. Students bring these matters to bear to gain a fuller understanding of democratic theory and the philosophy of liberty. A thesis that discusses some aspect of these issues and their relevance for an emerging free, prosperous and democratic Iraq will be required. This course is required for all international studies majors.
