INTD 502 Marine Pollution and Solutions (1 Credit)
INTD 512 American Public Administration (3 Credits)
This course is about the bureaucratic process and the implementation of public policy. Students will study the operations of the executive branch of government, specifically those who work behind the scenes to implement the policies and administer the programs that Congress passes. They will explore the relationship between civil servants and elected public officials, the structure of public organization, and the meaning of Congressional oversight. Students will study the politics of the administrative state and the constraints that both politics and constitutional structure impose on the administrative state, and will come to understand that it is through administration that ordinary citizens come into contact with their government on a daily basis.
INTD 513 The American Welfare State (3 Credits)
This course will explore the historical development, political theories, economics, and policies of the American welfare state. While the concept of welfare is often associated with assistance programs intended to benefit the dependent poor, the welfare state is considerably larger. Our task is to understand the welfare state as a larger framework whose task is the well being of all citizens, i.e. policies that promote the general welfare. While we will certainly pay attention to issues of poverty and public assistance programs, our focus will by no means be restricted to them. Rather we want to explore the welfare state in its broadest terms, which would include general employment policies, education, child care and health care.
