The events on September 11th created a dramatic a shift in American foreign policy. This course will examine the change in American foreign policy that occurred after these events. We will begin the class with a brief history of American foreign policy, followed by the events 9/11, and the “War on Terror.” Other areas that will be examined are the evolving relationship between business and politics, along with the growth of supra-national institutions such as the United Nations, European Union and the World Trade Organization. Current events and international relations will also dominate the class. Participation in class discussions is a key component of the class.
