Presidency Course Syllabi

    This is an American presidency syllabus and course page list for convenient reference by PRG members and any other interested persons.  They are organized alphabetically, by last name of the course instructor, followed by institution and semester/quarter of the syllabus.  Many filenames are directly imported, but others I had to alter from default URL titles toward the course heading to avoid misinforming the user of this resource.  The files also vary in format.  Most are in hypertext or Acrobat's .pdf.  Others are in Microsoft Word with suffix .doc, .rtf or .docx.  Caution:  some .doc files load very slowly, and some make return to this page difficult.  I recommend right-clicking all .doc links to "Open in New Window."  That confines any troubles to a separate browser.

    Link failure is a chronic search problem with all syllabus collection projects.  Many failures owe to faculty or departments opting to blot out old course pages as soon as they're out of immediate use.  You can always create your own Archives page to stow these while not losing access for the PRG and student browsing community.  That way Google (and I) can still locate and link them.

Searchers who still encounter failures can do the following:

  • Copy the instructor's name plus institution for search via Google at  I showed all links by listing the specific course number alongside title in the link, after which comes the instructor's name.  Often this will produce quick entree to a revised syllabus location or an archive site.  I am also adding home pages when readily available (depending on the URL structure).

  • Should one search engine produce nothing useful, try another.  Google isn't universal.  In 2009 there's the new Microsoft entry of Bing at which works a lot like Google.  Also try AllTheWeb at; Ask Jeeves at; and Dogpile at  Search engines do not exactly reproduce each other's results.

  • Once on a site page that's apparently not usable, peal back the URL from the rightmost term, one segment at a time.  Often this moves to a URL for the instructor's index or resource page.  You'll see some links below that contain more than one URL for a single course.  Usually that's because a syllabus is separate from a resources page, or other useful information.  It's worth trolling a bit to see what else is linked there.  But caution, again:  the standards of Fair Use should always be observed rigorously.  See Stanford Copyright & Fair Use Center at for expert guidance on that.  Some syllabi and other materials will show a stipulation from the author on use.  These should be carefully honored even to the point of whether to link to something.  I interpret this site and similar ones to have the right to link to anyone's site, unless they expressly stipulate otherwise.  But if they seek strict privacy, I defer to that.

    Many of these syllabi address only the American presidency.  Some are integral to the office but fashioned around a component such as presidential rhetoric or presidential relations with Congress.  A few syllabi come from the American Political Development or political institutions genre at graduate level.  All of these contain a significant share of reading material directly addressing the American presidency.  I took a representative sampling of these rather than an all-inclusive approach.  I also included presidential campaigns and elections courses where available.  Finally there are General syllabi locales and Other useful resources for outside searches and inquiries.

    This is ultimately a group enterprise for the Presidency Research Group membership.  Your suggestions and critique are needed and welcome.  Please e-mail Russell Renka at
