YouTube Poli-Sci Series

I won a research/teaching assistantship during graduate school. Eventually, the university literally gave me the keys to the classroom. I designed two undergraduate introductory political science courses. These include Introduction to Comparative Politics and Introduction to International Politics (International Relations Theory).

Below, you can find YouTube series documenting the courses I designed. Each module ran three hours in class (50 minutes for each part); however, I have significantly shortened the modules to around sixty minutes (20 – 30 minutes per part).
