Policy Analysis

Taught By: Oscar Sosa Lopez
Section: A

CRN: 2495

Credits: 3

Policy Analysis is the first course in a three-part sequence required for all students in the urban policy program. It prepares you for the Urban Policy Lab and the Advanced Seminar, in which students analyze policy and management issues and make recommendations for actual clients. This course is designed to help students develop and apply analytic skills necessary for informed decision making. Although policy analysis was originally associated with the public sector, it is now important to the nonprofit and corporate sectors as well. Based largely on case discussions, the class will explore the choices facing decision makers in the public and nonprofit sectors in the US and abroad with regard to a wide range of issues, including public health, climate change, environmental justice, and transportation. While the course will emphasize the development of analytic skills, it will also discuss alternative models of policy analysis and consider several critical perspectives. The course will culminate in a team project in which students work on a policy problem in preparation for Urban Policy Lab. For Urban Policy Analysis and Management graduate students, it is part of a three-semester sequence that includes Urban Policy Lab and Advanced Seminar. NURP 6002 is also a requirement for Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management graduate students taking the Policy Concentration. (Offered Fall Term only.)

This course counts as an elective course for the Graduate Minor in Impact Entrepreneurship.
