American Foreign Policy

American foreign policy has had and continues to have an immense impact on world events. This course introduces students to the institutional, political, economic, ideological and strategic factors that have combined over the centuries to produce a foreign policy tradition and a set of strategic ideas out of which American presidents and other actors draw ideas and arguments to meet foreign policy challenges of the day. The course will ground the discussion of American foreign policy in the related tradition of British foreign policy, trace the development of the American approach from the Washington to the Trump administrations, and use this framework to help students analyze contemporary developments in American policy and strategy around the world.
