PPOL 200
Methods of Policy Analysis

This course aims to prepare citizens to help their communities make informed and effective decisions. We will explore practical applications of the principal methods of policy analysis. These include a variety of quantitative and qualitative analytical tools used by policy analysts to frame issues, generate alternative options, project outcomes, and inform decision making in a democratic society. In addition, we will develop and practice oral and written communication skills relevant to policy analysis, culminating in a policy analysis paper and presentation.
