Introductory politics class suffers biggest enrollment loss at UW-Madison over last 10 years

Todd Milewski:

Introduction to American Politics and Government course was one of the most-attended at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Now, it’s barely hanging onto a spot on the list of the 100 highest-enrolled courses.

Enrollments in that introductory-level political science course and a race and ethnicity class have dropped more than any others in the last decade.

In the same period, basic computer programming and engineering design classes have taken off in popularity, but none has been able to knock off General Chemistry I as the school’s most-popular course.
