你将学到什么

Understand the the US population: age, family structure, education and race/ethnicity to interpret where US social policy is being pushed.

Explain poverty & inequality in the US that results in differing levels of privilege, and opportunity to address the needs of those left behind

Describe the policy process – legislative, executive, judicial and voluntary – to act to improve US social policy

Honors: Report on research of practices on the ground in preparation for a professional policy analysis.

课程概况

This course has four modules, or foci. The first is to understand the categories of social welfare—populations, income, earnings, and assets— and some related concepts that play a very large role in shaping policy decisions: unemployment, inflation, and the minimum wage. The second deals with the central institution of social welfare—the labor market, which largely determines how many resources a person has. The labor market also establishes hierarchy, both through meritocracy and through categories of privilege. The third is poverty: the differing ways we define who is poor, and how effective U.S. anti-poverty efforts have been. The final module looks directly at federal decision making, the political organization of ideas, the structure of U.S. government, and the legislative process that shapes much of our social policy. This course addresses issues of power, oppression, and white supremacy.

The course is part of a sequence in social policy that has an HONORS TRACK. This track will prepare the learner for masters-level work in policy, which involves reading the literature, writing concise summaries and probing critiques. Over the sequence the learner will develop a policy analysis that will create a foundation for professional policy analyst assignments.
