GOVT 83.28 Persuasion and the Policy Process

This class examines how people form policy preferences and the process by which those preferences do—or do not—get translated into public policies in the United States. The course will examine three aspects of this process:  elite rhetorical strategy, the media routines that generate coverage of policy debates, and mass opinion.  We will assess the way political elites, the media mass, and ordinary people interact to create policies that can be either intelligent or pathological.

Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. 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.
