About the course

About this degree

The rapid expansion and increased availability of quantitative data in recent years provides policymakers with both important opportunities and great challenges. The vast size and complexity of digital information can improve how we understand, design, implement, and evaluate effective public policy.

The Data Science and Public Policy MSc is defined by two routes: the Economics route and the Political Science route. Each route has its own set of entry requirements to reflect the emphasis of that route and to ensure you thrive on whichever path you choose to pursue. You can apply for a place on either the Economics or Political Science route of this programme.
