TEACHING



         

As a political scientist, my primary aim as an instructor is to assist students in developing their own critical thinking skills. In my courses, these skills are firmly rooted in coherent logic, empirical evidence, and normative implications. I want students to not only become critical consumers of social science information, but to also develop the requisite skills to become producers of basic scientific knowledge. I offer challenging material that represents the leading-edge in political science scholarship to both my undergraduate and graduate courses. I am highly accessible to students to assist them in their mastery of the course content and objectives.
