Estimating Impacts in Policy Research

Course Description

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.
