563 Capstone Project

Capstone Project (20:831:563:TP:11799)
Class Dates: 6/1 - 8/18
Class Times: Meeting By Arrangement
Instructor: Emas
Location: Canvas
Format: Online
Credits: 3
COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The capstone provides students with an opportunity to integrate learning from various courses with applied analysis of real-world issues. Students work individually under the guidance of a faculty member to develop a research design, carry out data collection and analysis, evaluate their findings, and provide conclusions and recommendations. The capstone seminar serves as a culminating experience in the M.P.A. program. The course allows students to draw on material presented throughout the curriculum to develop and conduct an applied research project on a topic salient to public or nonprofit administration. This seminar will prepare students to use the skills they have developed throughout the program to analyze and solve key public management and policy problems. Students will complete practical analytic papers suitable for publication or public consumption as their key graded assignment. These papers demonstrate each student's abilities and their collective body of skills and knowledge acquired throughout the M.P.A. curriculum. The capstone project challenges students to clearly articulate a research question, identify best practices in the field through a literature review, and develop and execute a research protocol, in which the student:

  • defines a research question that addresses an existing public or nonprofit problem;
  • identifies a theoretical model through which to approach the issue;
  • selects appropriate data collection methods;
  • collects data;
  • analyzes and interprets the data; and
  • develops a written report and oral presentation of the findings and recommendations.

At the conclusion of the course, students will have demonstrated effective research skills, excellent oral and written communication skills, and will have displayed the level of knowledge necessary for effectively managing a public or nonprofit organization as a competent leader.

526 Evidence-Based Public Management & Policy

Evidence-Based Public Management & Policy (20:834:526:HP:11951)
Class Dates: 7/12 - 8/18
Class Times: Meeting By Arrangement
Instructor: Lee
Location: Canvas
Format: Online
Credits: 3
COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Focusing on "best practice" and "evidence-based practice" and distinctions between them, this course offers an introduction to those wishing to craft more effective policies and programs in public and nonprofit organizations. It explores the linkages between public policy and management, including understanding the process of policy formulation and change in the U.S. context and beyond. The meaning of "evidence-based" is considered in applied policy and management contexts, and the implication of differences in evidence type and quality are considered. The conflicting role of values and evidence in shaping program and policy choices will be conceptualized in order to appreciate the effect of context in applying evidence to a local policy/management problem. Students will be better equipped to identify "best practices" and to develop "evidence-based practices" to improve organizational effectiveness in management settings. Adaptation of programs or policies to their adoptive local context is presented as a mechanism for better aligning organizations with their environment. Pitfalls of the rational approach are reviewed to caution the strictly symbolic use of such approaches. The relationship between evidence-based practice and its counterpart, performance management, is explored.

Online MPA students only.
