Public policy. How do we shape it? How do we enact it? This course will help you answer those questions and quite a few more.
In an effort to understand public policy, you’ll deconstruct local, state, and international issues drawn from the pages of The New York Times; you’ll develop the social science skills to define and identify policy components; and you’ll use graphs, tables, and statistics to analyze and communicate your ideas.
Ultimately, you’ll identify a social problem and propose a policy to deal with it—defending the costs and outlining the expected benefits—becoming a more informed citizen, worker, and consumer.
