The Politics and Policy Series is a thought-provoking, stimulating series of courses and events.  The series will combine in-class lectures and assignments with the hands-on experience and intellects of both American and Global politics experts in order to dissect the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections, while also providing an international perspective.

From the evolution of the two party system, to soccer’s impact on world politics, to the use of the propaganda ideology symbolism and political PR savvy to influence messaging, these courses and events will showcase the insights and practical knowledge of Milano professors and introduce students to a critical understanding of a presidential campaign and its inner workings.
