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!

Education Rome

Spartacus to Ali: Masculinity and Multiculturalism – Comparing Educational Pipeline Development in Italy and the U.S. is a three-week Exploration Seminar based at the UW Rome Center in Italy.

 

Priority Deadline: February 15th

Program Dates: Aug. 17th – Sept. 7th, 2018

Total Program Fees: Estimated $4,800

Location: UW Rome Center, Italy

Program websitehttps://studyabroad.washington.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgram&Program_ID=11734

By comparing and contrasting the development of both Italian and American education systems, we will explore historical, social, psychological, political, and contemporary factors that have shaped and continue to shape the common trajectories among men in the two countries. A true titan of historical civilizations, Ancient Rome is arguably one of the largest and most influential empires the world has ever known. From gladiatorial training to the passing of the Casati Act and current day reform debates, what formal education has looked like and who has access to it are complicated questions. Answering those questions with respect to common male trajectories requires a rich understanding of historical influences, systems of oppression and how we make sense of masculinity in the context of race and class. Rome provides countless opportunities to explore Italian masculinity and male trajectories through history, art, and current day systems.

This course will illuminate the factors that inform our understanding of various outcomes and experiences for Italian men as compared to American men. In addition to education, there will be critical discussions of other facets of Italian society and history such as sports culture, compulsory service, and the criminal justice system along with visits to the Colosseum, museums, Italian schools, and other field trips to broaden our understanding of male trajectories. An emphasis is placed on Italian incarceration as opposite education in examining the spectrum of common societal pipelines. This provides an important point of comparison to the school to prison pipeline in the U.S. as an anchoring point for a richer understanding and discussion of the relationship between education, masculinity, multiculturalism, historical disenfranchisement and systems of oppression.
