Public policy is the set of laws and rules enacted and enforced by government. This course introduces students to how public policies are made and to the skills used to analyze and evaluate them. To help students lead and create change in public policy arenas, they learn the key analytical skills in any policy maker’s toolkit: policy analysis and program evaluation.
This is the basic toolkit for public policy, and will prepare students for any further study in the field.
Students end the term by designing an action plan that either evaluates a program or analyzes a policy of their choice. The practical skills and substantive content taught in this course provide students a foundation for leadership, preparing them to be critical and informed citizens.
