We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Public Policy equip postgraduates with the skills to study the policies that local and central governments implement, and the sociological effect these have on communities.
Related subjects include Public Administration and Policy Research & Practice. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject, such as Law, Politics or Communication Studies.
The aim of Public Policy is to solve societal problems efficiently and effectively, encouraging active citizenship, serving justice and honouring governmental institutions.
Courses in this field offer a multidisciplinary approach to learning, drawing on methodologies from fields such as Politics, Communications, Law and Sociology. You will be trained in taking an ethical approach to sociocultural issues, through multi-level governance and regulation.
For example, you may examine the policy-making process with regards to constitutional laws and regulations, solving issues such as gender inequalities, care for the elderly and social housing.
Traditional careers in this field include public policy research, policy advice, and lobbying within local and central government, as well as public sector management and journalism.
