Want to learn how U.S. public policy is really made? Want to hear directly from political leaders on how things get done in Washington, DC? This University of Virginia course will provide lectures from top leaders, such U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, former Congressman Tom Davis, Congressman Gerry Connolly, former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Meyers and more. This comprehensive public policy course will include U.S.-China relations, health policy and defense policy.

This course is designed to explore the challenges facing current U.S. and international policymakers for the century ahead. It will provide learners the tools to become policy entrepreneurs. The course is designed to enable learners to become thoughtful analysts and advocates of public policy prescriptions. The course assumes basic knowledge about governing institutions and democratic processes, and it will provide recommended supplemental material.

As we evaluate how issues are addressed by citizens’ groups, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and government policymakers, we’ll consider how individuals become effective advocates for alternative policy options. Particular attention will be paid to how winning coalitions are formed and how issue-framing shapes the outcome of issue campaigns. Our goal is to enhance understanding of how public policy options are tested and adopted in the real world political arena.
