Teaching of Policy Sciences : Design for a Doctorate University Program.
An outline of the proposed content and objectives of a curriculum for a postgraduate program in policy sciences. As envisioned, training of policy scientists on the doctorate level should involve multidimensional learning experiences--traditional lectures, readings, exercises, colloquia, and seminars. Such experiences should enable optimal understanding of three basic areas of policy science: decisionmaking and policymaking behavior, normative policy theory, and institutional change. Learning methods should include, as a minimum, gaming, cases and projects, internship, new types of dissertations, and study tours. Some experimentation with task directed T-group methods is indicated. Various activities are considered to advance policy sciences as an interdiscipline and further its academic and professional recognition. 40 pp.
