MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) _ A new course being offered by George Washington University and Saint Anselm College promises to provide insight into both the national political establishment and the day-to-day grassroots campaigning in New Hampshire.

The interactive class on politics and elections during the fall semester will focus on the presidential nominating process. Classrooms on both campuses will be connected via video conferencingtechnology, and students in Washington also will travel to New Hampshire in October get involved with campaigns.

The new class was developed in partnership with the Bipartisan Policy Center.
