Social and Public Policy (MSc)
The programme is suitable for students who want to develop their capacity to analyse social and public policies nationally and internationally. It enables students to deepen their understanding of the major aspects of social and public policy, including competing conceptions of citizenship and how these inform social policy; contemporary forms of governance and public policy implementation, and the use of theories and research evidence to analyse and explain social and public policy change.
Applicants should normally hold a 2nd Class Honours degree in a humanities or social sciences subject. However, other applicants will be considered if they can demonstrate, through recent and relevant experience, that they have the ability to undertake the course.
All years: International and comparative social and public policy; participative citizenship; democracy and governance; principles and practices of research design; critical perspectives in social science; dissertation.
Modules are assessed by a combination of essays, reports, reviews and presentations. There are no examinations.
