The College of Arts and Sciences at NYU is a learning environment that will be an ideal place for me to develop my interest in politics, which is my planed major. The school offers a rich and diverse selection of courses that provides a comprehensive education on politics that is both practical and theoretical. Why does Donald Trump's campaign still thrive despite many political pundits predicting its demise? The "Campaign Strategy and Media in Domestic and International Campaigns" course may...
