Public Policy Analysis
|Description:||Exploring the many faces of power in society, political science at Huron investigates the big political ideas and visions, world-transforming movements inspired by political ideals, the daily lives of political organizations, as well as the inner mechanisms of governments. In the study of Political Science at Huron, we recognize that many of today's most urgent and complex public challenges require new forms of ethical leadership that combine social justice and inclusive decision-making.
State and Policy modules are concerned with the details of how policy ideas emerge and make their way through the system of policy consultation and formation, resulting in the making of binding laws and regulations. These modules also examine institutional and organizational structures and investigate matters related to policy implementation and evaluation. A background in state and policy is a useful preparation for graduate research in public administration or policy analysis as well as for careers in the public service, business administration, political consulting, policy research institutes, and not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations.
