Sem/Midterm Congressional Elections

Follow the 2018 elections this fall as Democrats battle President Trump and the Republicans for control of the House and Senate.


This research seminar is designed to offer students a thorough grounding in what political scientists understand (and still fail to understand) about Congressional elections.

Students will learn to evaluate theoretical arguments and empirical evidence critically, and develop their research skills so that they will be competitive when searching for a job or applying to graduate school.
