POL 3112A - Public Policy and Administrat
This course offers an in-depth study of the way in which public policy is developed and implemented in the United States. It will consider the broad spectrum of opinion regarding that with which government should and should not become involved. This course will consider the influence of interest groups, social movements, and political parties on the development and implementation of public policy. It will explore the major institutions of government and their respective impact on the policy-making process. It will explore specific case studies of public policy across a wide spectrum of issue areas, e.g., National Economic Policy, National Social Welfare Policy, and National Regulatory Policy. While the primary emphasis will be on the National Government, lecture/reading material and student-selected research projects will regularly address issues more closely connected to the operation of State and/ or local governments.
