For topics not part of regular course offerings, or offering of new courses on a trial basis. May be taken up to three times provided the topics are different.

This course is intended to serve two purposes. The first is to offer a course on a special topic not currently covered in the undergraduate curriculum. The format will be especially useful for courses that are likely to be offered only once. The second is to offer a new course to undergraduates on an experimental basis before it is formally incorporated into the curriculum.  Currently, LPS has been using PS398 designated courses when we have special or experimental course offerings.  This isn't an accurate designation as these are course for the LPS major, not the political science.
