PG 355 - American Public Policy


1.0

The relationship between public policymaking and the American federal system is explored from many vantage points. Emphasis is placed on the roles of local, state, and federal agencies in the operation of complex government programs in such policy areas as the environment, transportation, health care, social welfare, and education. The course also includes an examination of the major state and local government institutions (e.g., legislatures, governorships, municipalities). The political and governmental differences between inner cities, suburbia, and rural areas are frequently examined. Spring Group I
