DEVM-536 Policy: Theory and Methods
Professor Mark Rom
We have two main goals in this course: First, we want to develop the ability to conduct high quality research regarding why policies are adopted (or rejected) and implemented well (or poorly); Second, we want to enhance your ability to analyze the impact of policies.  The first goal is mainly political. To understand why and how policies are enacted and implemented, you will need to develop a keen understanding of the policy process. To understand the impact of policies, you will need to develop a broad range of quantitative and qualitative analytical tools.
