An unequalled reading list and lecture notes – how one student is learning about inequality through ‘self-designed independent study’

Megan Erwin is a 2nd year Master of Public Affairs (MPA) student at Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) where she studies Public Financial Administration and Policy Analysis. She is doing a set of readings and blogging about them on Inequality and Policy.  She explains what she is doing:

This blog is the main deliverable for a self-designed independent study at Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs on inequality, social mobility and public policy. The reading list for each week was determined based on common readings and authors found in syllabi for related courses at some of the most prestigious schools in the country as well as recommendations by the sponsoring professor, Dr. Maureen Pirog.

Each week I will blog on the weekly topic as outlined in the reading list, available here: inequality-social-mobility-and-public-policy-readings-schedule

I like the idea of independent study and a self-designed course. Remember to follow the blog Inequality and Policy
