Primary Instructor:

This course introduces students to environmental politics and the environmental policy-making process, with primary emphasis on United States federal, state, local, and intergovernmental governance. The course draws heavily from the discipline of political science in examining environmental politics and how this body of theory translates into public policy. Throughout the course, we will compare the respective abilities of local, state, and federal governments to both enact and implement environmental policy, using case studies and current events to better understand the policy making process. The course will also draw upon past experience and current trends to consider what the future of American environmental policy might entail. The course will define “environment” quite broadly, covering a range of issue areas including more conventional issues such as air and water pollution as well as green energy, urban sprawl, and Great Lakes restoration.
