Capitol Policy and Law

Some field studies travel to exotic lands, some to exotic ideas. This field study will take place primarily at the Minnesota State Capitol. How do legislators prepare for their service? What is the role of a lobbyist? How do citizens engage the insiders of the political process? What really goes on in committee meetings? Students will discover answers to these questions and many more as they meet the makers of Minnesota policy. This is a course of action as well as study and students will be expected to prepare an analysis of a key environmental issue and meet with legislators to present that analysis.

Course Fee: $0
