Program Description:
Topics in Comparative Politics is a faculty-led summer program that follows the Rutgers on-campus Topics in Comparative Politics course. It is recommended but not required that students take this course in the spring. The United States and Japan are natural cases for comparison, given similarities between their political institutions, economic structures, and economic strength. On this program students will conduct a detailed comparison that will help you assess how culture and history shape the policies of states and the worldview of citizens.
