Advanced United States Government

The Beekman School's Advanced United States Government Course

This is a one-semester course for seniors. The course begins with basic political theory and study of the founding of the nation and the corresponding documents, but incorporates the themes of freedom, order, and equality into the curriculum. The course continues with an in-depth study of federalism, in America. In addition to studying the make-up of the government, students will learn about electoral politics, lobbying, interest groups and the mass media. They will finish with an incredible understanding of lawmaking and Congress, as well as the Presidency and the Supreme Court. This course will assist the student in preparing for the American Government AP exam, though he/she will have to complete additional outside study to cover all topics on the test. 

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
