EP 608 Analytical Methods for Environmental Policy Analysis

Course Description: This course will introduce students to the range of methods relevant to the empirical analysis of environmental policy, with the goal of guiding students through the process of writing a research proposal. Students will learn to do a literature review, frame a research question, develop a feasible research strategy, and then write a well-designed proposal that will comprise the basis of their Master’s research project. Readings in research methods, along with examples of published research, will train students in the qualities of solid, empirical research, including focus, validity, and clarity of articulation. Students will also learn oral presentation skills in the presentation of their proposals.
