The Campaigns & Elections market is approximately 20,000 students per year, though enrollments tend to fluctuate based on the election cycle. The course is offered at least every election year at most four-year schools, and frequently once per year. Campaigns & Elections is sometimes taught as a standalone course (especially in large research universities where there are a number of faculty who teach in the political behavior area), and sometimes in combination with other political behavior topics. The combination courses, taken primarily by upper level Poli Sci majors, are almost as common as the single-topic courses.
Stephen K. Medvic teaches Campaigns & Elections, American Government, and other political behavior courses at Franklin and Marshall College. He earned bachelors degrees in political science and philosophy from Texas A&M University and both a masters and Ph.D. in political science from Purdue University. Before joining the faculty at Franklin & Marshall, Dr. Medvic taught at Old Dominion University from 1997 to 2002. He was a Research Fellow at ODU's Social Science Research Center from 2001-2002. Dr. Medvic has authored several books, including POLITICAL CONSULTANTS IN U.S. CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS, SHADES OF GRAY: PERSPECTIVES ON CAMPAIGN ETHICS, and GUIDE TO POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS IN AMERICA. His articles have been published in PS and Legislative Studies Quarterly, and he has provided political analysis for NBC Nightly News, CNN, The Washington Post, The Washington Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, Richmond Times-Dispatch, Salon.com, and Fox News On-line.
