Canadian Politics

This seminar has three major objectives; provide analytical tools for the study of public policy; acquaint students with the major traditions in the study of public policy in Canada; and to develop an in-depth knowledge of at least one policy field in Canadian public policy. In order to achieve these objectives, students will need to learn how to discern patterns of public policy in Canada and how to evaluate critically explanations for these patterns. All students will study and use evidence-based methods and graduate students especially will be expected to have their research guided explicitly by public policy theory.
