Apply now: Politics and Leadership course


Are you a junior Public Policy major planning on completing a summer internship related to politics and policy? Are you interested in politics and leadership? Then join us this spring for an exciting Hart Leadership course that delves into the connection between leadership, policy, and politics.

Political Participation and Leadership, taught by Alma Blount and Steve Schewel, focuses on how to exercise leadership to create political change, both from positions of formal authority and at the grassroots level. Through books, newspapers, documentary films, and current events, we will discuss stories of how policies can be advanced—or buried, evaded, and distorted—and investigate leadership strategies for moving past political polarization and gridlock to engage in the difficult work of governance. Ultimately, this course challenge students to think deeply about their own values and preconceptions and to learn how to practice politics to lead political change.

Applications to be in the course are now online and must be submitted by Monday, October 31st by 5 PM.

Please contact Sarah Du with questions or for further information.
