Public Policy Research

The course provides students with an excellent grounding in social science research methods and theory and in contemporary public policy analytical processes. Studying public policy theory and practice within the urban setting of Glasgow allows for direct engagement with many of the most pressing public policy problems of our time and with the types of solutions being developed to combat these. By the end of the programme students will leave equipped with a secure grounding in social science research theory; will have developed transferable skills in qualitative and quantitative research methods; will have demonstrated grounded knowledge and understanding of specialist areas of public policy in order to allow students to pursue their own career interests; and will have met fully the research training requirements of the UK Economic and Social Research Council and the Social Sciences Graduate School for doctoral students.
