GOVT 83.04 Myths and Realities in Public Policy Solutions

This course will investigate major areas of public policy including health care, energy, banking, social security and education.  Through readings and lively discussion, students will grow in their understanding of these deeply important issues.  The aim of the course will be to dispel public policy myths that benefit candidates or their parties in the political arena but do not have the capacity to solve real world problems.  We will approach public policy as academics rather than political practitioners.  While we will move from issue to issue quickly, students will have the opportunity to focus on one of those issues for in-depth study in a final paper.

It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
