TEACHING

For classes I'm currently teaching, have recently taught, or am likely to teach again, I have posted recent syllabi on this page.

For tips and advice on surviving graduate school, approaching research, and tackling the academic job market, see my "Tips and Advice" page.

THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA, COLUMBIA

  • Poli 721: Race and Public Policy (FA 2019)

For many of these classes, students are asked to write research designs, construct an annotated bibliography, and/or write a research design. For help in doing so and understanding what I expect in each, see my "Tips and Advice" page.
