FSEM: Parks and Recreation
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson have different views of what government should do. From Socialist to Libertarian, there are lots of different ideas about the proper role of government and how we define the public good. Using episodes of Parks and Recreation as a jumping off point, this course will explore the role of government in our lives, the services it provides and our role as constituents in shaping it. Students will hear from various public servants and explore the many ways public policy and public administration affect our lives on a daily basis. By the end of the course students will know who to thank or blame depending on if they side more with Leslie or Ron.
