US Political Parties


Political Parties have been around since before the founding of our Nation. The party names may have changed, but the way they function has not. We will be looking at not only looking at the two larger parties but also the establishment of smaller parties as well. These are called Minority parties. In most elections, you have to part of a political party if you are serious about getting elected. Throughout this course, we discuss the following:

Week 1: History of political parties in the United States

Week 2: Roles and Functions of political parties of the United States

Week 3. The Two-party system in the United States

Week 4. Minor parties and today’s Political outlook in the United States.


This course will be a lecture and open discussion style class. During this course, students will have the opportunity to answer Critical thinking questions and ask thought-provoking questions.
