Course Description

Many U.S. Citizens take their citizenship for granted. But, what if the rules changed? Just imagine if you now had to take a government civics test every year to remain a U.S. citizen... Would you be able to pass? Could you identify the co-equal branches of government and what their functions and responsibilities are? Explain the electoral college? The U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights? Know your Congressional representatives? Explain the concept of ‘gerrymandering?’ Explain the National Debt?Claiming your rights and fulfilling your duties as citizens, particularly as voters, requires all of us to have a working understanding of how our government actually functions. American Civics 101 is a timely 6-part discussion that provides a simple but comprehensive path to understanding what every person applying for U.S. Citizenship today need to know... How our U.S. Government actually works! Please note that this class was offered in Summer 2023.
