PPOL 214
Social Policy Analysis

This course applies core frameworks and tools of policy analysis to key social policy contexts, including housing, health, education, labor, criminal justice, and social safety net policies. Students learn the policy history and structures of key domestic social programs, and utilize this knowledge to conduct policy analyses of current reform proposals. This course both introduces students to major areas of policy-making and offers them the opportunity to apply their core learning to real-world policy contexts.
