American Government from the Inside
Unique new class offered at FCC!
FCC is excited to offer a new class format where students will have the opportunity to learn from a professor who currently serves as an elected official.
American Government from the Inside (POSC 104) is offered in the Summer 2019 and Fall 2019 semesters. Students will visit local, state, and national governments to see where our government operates and to learn from elected officials and staff.
The course is taught by Ken Kerr, an FCC professor who won the Maryland House of Delegates District 3B election in Nov 2018 and was sworn in to office in Jan 2019. Kerr also previously held a position on the Frederick County Board of Education.
Register today for this one-of-a-kind opportunity. Seats are limited.
