The history of the American presidency and of the men who have occupied the office, from George Washington to Donald Trump. Through lectures, readings, research and writing, and discussion, we explore the office's origins and evolution over time, considering the presidency and presidents in the context of economic, diplomatic, cultural, and media history, and assessing how historical understanding can better inform our present political moment.

Successful completion of this 5-credit course will fulfill the I&S requirement and it also may be taken as an optional W credit for students who complete additional writing assignments.
