Comparative Public Policy

This programme is currently under review. Please note that programme structure and course availability is subject to change. The MSc Comparative Public Policy provides intensive analytical training in the systematic comparison of social and public policies from an international perspective. It helps develop substantive knowledge in a wide range of policy fields around topical issues such as policy evaluation, policy learning and policy transfer. Amid the ongoing debate on Scotland's role within the UK, we offer the ideal environment in which to observe contemporary public policy developments. You'll focus on variation in national policy patterns within and beyond Europe, with a view to understanding how and why nations differ in their social and public policies and what they can learn from each other's experience in key contemporary policy concerns, including labour market, work-life balance, health, social care, inequality and welfare issues, education policy and child-oriented policy and practice.
