UA offers new battleground course

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: January 9, 2013

The election may be over, but politics never stop.

The University of Akron will offer a new continuing education course this semester for students of all ages that will look at political agendas. 

John Green, who heads up UA's Bliss Institute of Applied Politics, will co-teach the "National Battleground" course with Jerry Austin, a well-known political consultant who was among the instructors of a battleground course at UA during the presidential election year.

The 14-week, evening course will be offered in a classroom at UA and through distance learning at satellite campuses. 

The course will look at how politicos pursue their agendas and the results of these efforts, reviewing the implications for public policy and the next election. A trip to Chicago is planned to observe the special election to replace U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr.

The course is $50 and will meet from 5:20 to 7:50 p.m. on Tuesdays, from Jan. 15 until April 23, except. March 26 when class won't be held.
