This advanced undergraduate seminar builds upon the introductory course by engaging in more in-depth policy research, analysis, and presentation in three concrete ways. First, as a policy-based course, we will collaboratively review and discuss key issues around immigration policy and political advocacy. Approximately two (2) required textbooks will be utilized for this purpose. Second, students will have an exciting opportunity to conduct original policy based research and prepare a professional presentation over one specific issue. Please begin to think about what specific topic you would be most interested in pursuing as early as possible. Class time will also be devoted to discussion, presentation, and peer review of your work. Third and finally, we will collaboratively explore challenges related to policymaking at the local level, including possible career opportunities. More information will be discussed during class.

MAS 308 • Introduction To Policy Studies

32090 • Fall 2000
Meets TTH 3:30PM-5:00PM WAG 112

This course examines contemporary Mexican-American issues from the perspective of a policy analyst. Students will learn the basic tools of policy analysis and apply them to a variety of issues and proposed policy solutions. The course has two objectives: (1) To train students how to inform public policy by providing decision makers with objective policy analysis. (2) To help students understand why public policy decisions often diverge from the recommendations made by policy analysts. In other words, this is a course about both policy analysis and the politics behind policymaking.

While the focus of this course is on policy issues that affect Mexican-Americans and/or Latinos, students will learn that policies often have widespread impact on many groups. Policy also often results in unintended consequences.

Students will also learn about the challenges policy analysts face when they attempt to use objective public policy metrics to analyze policies that often have moral or symbolic frames.
