BUSP 3230 - Politics, Pol Inst. and Public Policy

3 hours
Prerequisites: POLI 1100 . The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the analysis of the making of public policy in the United States. More specifically, we will see how public policies result from the interplay of preferences and institutions. The main focus will be on the policy process and not policy outcomes. Thus, the course features sections on the institutional features of Congress and the presidency, public opinion, congressional and presidential elections, and case studies in American public policy. In order to gain more perspective on the American system, we also will contrast policymaking in the U.S. with policymaking in Europe.
