In addition, each student is expected to submit short response papers, which should include one's reactions, reflections, and questions for discussion. At each session, there will be a division of labor among students in summarizing the assigned readings and leading a discussion of them. The discussion will center on conceptual, analytical, and applied issues, whereas the instructor will serve as the moderator and a sounding board.
  • Learning Objectives: Students will gain an initial understanding of political science's place in understanding health policies. In particular, the students will be exposed to key political issues influencing health policy and the manners in which political scientists discuss and study them.
