Program Overview
The soaring rhetoric of what American government can be appears in Washington, D.C. in the original copies of our founding documents, and in speeches memorialized in places such as the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. The down and dirty reality also appears there, in the Capitol, the White House, the Supreme Court and the offices of lobbyists and party leaders. Join us for this travel course in Washington, D.C., as we explore all of these sites, comparing and contrasting the rhetoric and reality that is American Government.
