Governments are facing more demands of greater complexity every day. Meanwhile, their ability to deliver on those demands is increasingly circumscribed. This course is ideal if you want to pursue advanced conceptual studies in politics, which nevertheless include an applied focus. It considers the impediments and opportunities in contemporary policy-making.
Upper-second class honours degree (2.1) or equivalent. Your undergraduate degree should come from a recognised institution in political science or a closely related subject; however, all serious applicants from other disciplines will be considered. Applicants who fail to meet this standard may instead be offered initial diploma entry if their application is strong enough in other aspects.English language fluency: Non-native speakers of English must have an IELTS score of 7.0, with a minimum of 6.5 in up to two categories, or equivalent score on another acceptable test (see Admissions for more information). If your previous education was undertaken in the UK or another English speaking country, you may be exempt from this requirement.
Our core module on Theories and Traditions in Public Policy identifies and analyses the history of policy studies, the core concepts of policy analysis, and theories of policy change. You can choose from a large range of additional option choices, with further approved modules available from other Warwick departments. This allows you to take the course in your own direction and to explore areas such as European policy, global policy, policy and security, public policy, policy and development.
