Politics, International Relations, and Political Philosophy

During the course of this semester, we intend to identify some best practices which might improve both the overall U.S. system of governance and the ability of government officials in Washington, D.C. to represent the citizens of the United States of America more effectively.

Faith and Political Analysis

Students should always remember what is cited in the Doctrine and Covenants, Section 134: 1: "We believe that governments were instituted of God for the benefit of man; and that He holds men accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them, for the good and safety of society," and apply this to studies.
