Undergrads: Spring Quarter Public Policy Undergraduate Courses

We are excited to let you know that the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance has two undergraduate courses coming up in Spring quarter: PUBPOL 201: Introduction to Public Policy and Governance and PUBPOL 313: Evidence-based Implementation. 

Both courses are open to all undergraduate students. A bit more about each:

PUBPOL 201—This introduction to the field of policy analysis, governance, and public service teaches students how to analyze and evaluate policy and actions, as well as how individuals organize for common purposes. Learn how institutional problems are solved for the betterment of society, how policies can be analyzed and measured for impact, and how public policies are designed and implemented in order to respond to complex challenges related to climate change, urban planning, social justice, city planning, and more.

  • WHEN: It will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-11:30 am.
  • WHY: Because you want to change the world!

PUBPOL 313—This new course will explore the multidimensional challenge of turning policy and program intentions into valued results on the ground. To understand why the results of government initiatives so often fall short of expectation—and what might be done to raise the likelihood of policy success—requires an understanding of how public and nonprofit organizations work in practice: through their mission, resources, collaborations, and results measurement.

  • WHEN: It will meet Tuesdays from 2:30-5:20 pm.
  • WHY: Because you want to change the world!
