Public policy education, to some degree, shapes the direction and orientation of public policy development in theory and practice. The chapter examines Taiwan public policy analysis and programs with a comparative perspective in East Asian, North American and European universities. The public policy course syllabi are carefully reviewed to clarify the similarities and differences of course contents and to answer the research questions: What are the fundamentals of public policy? How have policy process, policy context, and policy analysis been provided? What are the textbooks? Does the training of public policy, regionally and internationally, more focus on empiricism or post-empiricism? This study not only explores the public policy education in different countries/areas, but also contributes to the understanding of trend, foresight, challenges, development, convergence, divergence of policy analysis theory and practice.
