Spring 2019 - 59865 - PA 325 - Topics in Policy

Defense Policy

The Department of Defense is a large, complex, and consequential enterprise: it employs more than three million people, spends more than $600 billion annually, and operates at more than 700 military sites abroad. Because of the time needed to train leaders, develop new doctrines and acquire new equipment, DoD also plans far ahead.

This undergraduate seminar will help students understand (1)what the nation’s defense policy is, who makes it, and how it is implemented. The focus will be on DoD, but with some attention to other key institutions such as the White House and Congress.
