Environmental Policy Analysis

This course investigates key issues in environmental policy analysis, including the philosophical foundations of environmental values, federal energy and environmental policy, techniques of environmental analysis, and decision making. The class sets a foundation with an overview of the U.S. and international environmental movements. Students look at agenda-setting, policy formulation and implementation, and policy evaluation in different institutions. The course emphasizes the important role that the political process plays in the creation of policy solutions, but also assesses the strengths and weaknesses of different techniques of environmental analysis like cost-benefit analysis, environmental impact assessment, modeling and simulation, sustainability analysis, life cycle analysis, and risk assessment.
