Responsible citizenship means more than just paying taxes. It means understanding the principles and practices of government. It also means defining one's beliefs as to what good government is. In this course, students take on the role of Washington, D.C., interns and spend time working throughout the nation’s capital with all three branches of the government—and beyond. As students progress through the internship, they gain a greater understanding of the history of the country's beginnings and knowledge of how government functions at the local, state, and national levels.
The purpose of this course is to help students become informed and active citizens. In part, the Declaration of Independence asserts that, “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.” This course helps students make their consent informed consent.
