PST 320-01 - Applied Policy Analysis

4 credits (Fall)
Why are our cities unaffordable, and what puts housing out of reach for middle and working class families? Housing is a fundamental feature of human life, but political forces, combined with economic change and globalization, have long shaped who is able to live where. This course examines the policies that govern the places where we (want to) live, and including issues like affordability, racial/economic segregation, gentrification, and short-term rentals. These concepts and examples will provide the foundations for a final project in which students will propose and assess housing policies.
