In this ten-week course, students will learn to write for a public policy audience. Students will research a policy topic and will write about it in three separate documents (an op-ed and two memos), each of which will undergo extensive revision. Through workshops, class discussion, and instructor feedback, students will finish the course with a strong writing sample and greater confidence in policy writing norms and style. The class meets once a week and is open only to MPA students.
