Innovative Political Science Class Makes News

An innovative political science class at Belmont University, taught by Dr. Vaughn May, gets feature coverage from The Tennessean today.

May, an assistant professor of political science in his first year at Belmont, said he hoped for such discussions when he thought up the first-time night class. For the past three Wednesdays, the 24 students have been able to discuss that week’s primaries and caucuses and the emerging political dynamics.
“It makes the students more enthusiastic about what’s going on,” May said while students finished an exam during the first half of the four-hour once-a-week class. “We timed it just right.”
