MSCI 689 - Public Policy for Science & Professions

Fall Credits: (3) Rossiter

This course examines what governments do and do not do. The class employs an engaging seminar format using provocative materials with practical applications. Students study the assumptions of public policy analysis, markets and government, tools for analysis, and political institutions (e.g., the executive, legislative branches and interest groups).This course is specifically designed for an interdisciplinary class of professional or graduate students from the Schools of Business, Education, Law, and Marine Science, as well as those in the School of Arts and Sciences who are not in a public policy degree program. Students will come to understand public policy as an academic discipline and as a systematic method of thinking about the design, development, and evaluation of public sector policies and programs.
