GOV 1320 is a survey course designed to introduce students to the basic concepts of international relations: power and influence, nations and states, sovereignty and law.

Chicago Manual of Style

The Chicago Manual of Style requires you to list all of your sources at the end of your paper in a section called the Bibliography. You also need to cite your sources when you quote or paraphrase them in the text of your paper. For in-text citations, the Chicago Manual of Style allows you to choose between using footnotes or using parenthetical citations. The footnote version of Chicago is called the Notes-Bibliography system. The parenthetical version of Chicago is called the Author-Date system. You can use either system, but be sure to be consistent.
