MSc Public Policy


Course Description

Public Policy is the study of how problems are addressed within political institutions. Queen Mary's MSc in Public Policy is unique, focused around current debates in policy-making and public management in both developed and developing countries. Through studying public policy, students gain theoretical and practical insights into policy formation and implementation

It is the oldest Public Policy course in London. It has an international and comparative element, whilst also having a strong focus on political theory and British politics
It is good on development issues, with a strong interest in the comparative analysis of policy for the developing world
The programme encourages a bespoke approach, where you design the content around your own research agenda, and apply what you learn to the policy fields in which you have an interest
Recent developments in the UK, including the Big Society plan to deliver public services through the Third Sector, make this course especially timely and relevant
If you want to help shape the future policy agenda, in a developed or developing country, then this programme is for you
