MSc International Social and Public Policy (With Specialisms in Development, Non-Governmental Organisations or Migration)

Course content

This new programme addresses how states and societies respond to global challenges of social, demographic and economic change, and of poverty, migration and globalisation. It is underpinned by the LSE approach to social and public policy that is explicitly international, interdisciplinary and applied. 

Meeting human needs and increasing well-being are universal policy goals but are addressed differently around the world, with different roles for governments, NGOs, families, and markets. Our ISPP programme incorporates this international and comparative perspective to policy design and evaluation. Looking at low-, middle-, and high-income countries, you will gain the skills to identify key social challenges and to analyse the social and public policies used to address them.

You can choose to take the MSc International Social and Public Policy without a specialism, with unrestricted option courses, or you can take particular optional courses to provide you with a specialism. You can decide to specialise either when you apply or early in the first term. Specialism options include:

  • MSc International Social and Public Policy (Development)
  • MSc International Social and Public Policy (Non-Governmental Organisations)
  • MSc International Social and Public Policy (Migration)

These programmes equip you for a career in social and public policy in government, NGOs, international organisations, private sector providers, or in academia.
