AP Comparative Government and Politics
Comparative Government and Politics is an incredibly important field of study for students in our modern, interconnected world. Globalization and other events over the past several decades have drawn the countries of the world closer together than at any other point in history. Events around the globe now directly impact our lives, and it is the job of students, our future leaders, to understand the similarities and the differences of these countries. In this course, students compare and contrast the government and politics of each of the countries studied and analyze both commonalities and differences among modern political systems throughout the world. The six countries studied are Great Britain, Iran, Russia, China, Mexico and Nigeria.
