Module assignments


Prüfungsform: Portfolio; The President of the United States of America is often called “the most powerful man in the world”, which might be one of the reasons why no other elected politician fascinates people around the world as much and why no other head of state is given more media attention than the man residing in the White House. Based on a variety of sources, this course will focus on the lives, accomplishments, failures, and legacies of the US Presidents in their historical contexts from the founding of the United States to World War II.
Note: The seminar will be held in English, reading assignments are in both, German and English
