MPP 6011 - American Public Policy


This course provides an overview of the study of public policy by exploring three different approaches to policy analysis: the behavioral, economic, and interpretive approaches. It surveys the topics central to the tasks of policy analysis: how problems are defined, how information is collected, how the relative costs and benefits of policy are assessed, how policy solutions are formulated and adopted, how government and the market succeed and fail, how analysis is utilized, and how ethics informs policy analysis. The course also emphasizes the three challenges to those who would analyze public policy: the challenge of partisanship, the challenge of uncertainty, and the challenge of pragmatism.
