Political science is normally taught divided into four separate fields with public policy sometimes considered a fifth separate unit. Stuart S. Nagel argues that because each of of these four core fields—political theory, American government, international relations, and comparative government —is centrally concerned with governance, public policy issues should be integrated throughout the political science curriculum. Nagel not only utilizes original data to support his contentions, but develops a pedagogical concern with examining the integration of policy substance into curricular planning and relevant teaching procedures. These teaching procedures inlcude: creating a sound policy curriculum, developing a course in policy analysis methodology and software that can be used for teaching both policy analysis and policy substance.
