The US presidential election comes at a time when the two major parties are especially divided. But, regardless of the outcome, Americans and their leaders are going to have to make difficult choices on how to confront a still struggling economy, growing national debt, and the country’s uncertain role on the international stage.

Hear our panel of experts discuss these challenges and how the US can and should proceed in the years ahead. The panel will also provide an opportunity to discuss not only who will win the upcoming election but its implications on US domestic and foreign policy.

There’s no better time to learn about America

A postgraduate information session will also be held before the panel discussion (6.00-7.00pm) and will give prospective students an opportunity to speak one-on-one with our academics about the Master of United States Studies.

To attend, all you need to do is register online
