This is an advanced course for students who plan to become policy analysts. Students (a) extend their familiarity with methodologic issues, including research designs, measurement problems, and analytic approaches; (b) get hands-on experience with management, analysis, and presentation of data; and (c) develop skills in reading, critiquing, and reporting on policy-relevant research. The course is oriented toward developing the skills and tools that are used by junior policy analysts. There is a quite a bit of learning by doing, through data analysis, data presentation, and critiquing of research studies.
The course video with Professor Jan Blustein provides more information.
