POLS 036. Policy Making in Practice

What does the policymaking process look like from the view of practitioners?  This class focuses on putting students in the position of different political actors - from legislative staffers to issue advocates, to bureaucrats and more - in order to gain both theoretical and practical knowledge of how preferences become policy.  Skills to be developed include strategic analysis, writing for internal and external audiences, negotiation strategy, and briefing presentations.
