Course Description: 

This course provides an introduction to the study of American public policy.  In contrast to the approach that might be taken at a Public Policy school, for example, the emphasis is on why government responds to particular problems in particular ways.  The course focuses on the political processes through which the federal government has developed an extensive range of domestic policies in areas such as health care, minority rights, and the environment.
