Why study state and local governments?
Much of the public policy made in Washington, D.C. shapes the agenda for state and local governments across the United States. From the sobering imperative of homeland security to the fascinating patchwork of interstate highways, streets and roads, public officials must understand the intricacies of the politics and economics inside state and local government. Their decisions will determine how public resources are raised and used to meet public service demands. The topics we will cover during this session are typical for Public Administration and Political Science majors at Miami University. I look forward to spending two weeks with you. -MM
