What you'll learn in this politics class:

From 2010-2015, Australia had five Prime Ministers in five years.  Like something out of a Shakespearean drama, there were stabs in the back, leadership spills, and double dissolutions.  Will things stabilize?  There's never been a more exciting time to follow politics Down Under.

This class will give you an overview of the structure, major personalities, and big-ticket issues in Australian politics today. The cast of characters would make a great movie. This is not your average afternoon C-SPAN stuff. Don’t fret if you have zero background on Australia; the country is facing the same big policy issues we are here, including immigration, the rise of populism, and climate change.

We’ll investigate how these issues play out in a different national context.  And with a new U.S. President, what is the future of the deep U.S.-Australia alliance?

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
