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.
