Applied Policy Lab is organized by the Student Policy Institute at Berkeley, a student-led, interdisciplinary public policy think tank. The course is open to all majors and years for up to 3 units. Applied Policy Lab is a space for students to analyze and craft public policy to address social issues. Students are free to select any topic that interests them, and they will be taught methods for researching, analyzing, and advocating their chosen policy topics. Students have the opportunity to explore any policy topic that interests them in a relaxed, supportive setting, and no previous experience with policy or social sciences is required. The course’s four class assignments center around building a portfolio on the student's policy topic, with one assignment due per month, with the assignments scaling for unit count.
