Missouri Government

Course Description

This course is designed to familiarize students with the constitutional framework and institutions of the state of Missouri, including the legislative, executive, and judiciary branches, and its political parties.

Missouri's inherent conservatism and individualism is explored in the frame of the state's role as a ''laboratory of democracy." Special attention is given to innovations in welfare and education policies, as well as Missouri's role in the national debates over the right to privacy as it applies to political and legal arguments involved in the right to die and abortion issues.

Missouri Senate Mandate #4 requires students transferring to a state school from out-of-state or private schools not required to follow the mandate to take this course.
