The programme aims to furnish students with an understanding of the complex issues surrounding the formation, implementation and evaluation of public policy. The programme will provide you with a grasp of the international and domestic institutional contexts which shape the policy making process, and specialist expertise in the theoretical and analytical tools necessary to conduct high quality research in public policy and administration. The range of option modules available to students, along with the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of their choice, allows students to pursue expertise in a particular area of interest, from public management to governance and development. The degree provides an ideal foundation for those wishing to pursue a career in academia, policy advising, lobbying, political research or journalism.
