MA Public Policy

Course Description

Governments are facing more demands of greater complexity every day. Meanwhile, their ability to deliver on those demands is increasingly circumscribed. This course is ideal if you want to pursue advanced conceptual studies in politics, which nevertheless include an applied focus.

It considers the impediments and opportunities in contemporary policy-making. As a result, you will emerge better able to assess how governments can overcome inertia and select the best policies for today’s world. Our core module on Theories and Traditions in Public Policy identifies and analyses the history of policy studies, the core concepts of policy analysis, and theories of policy change.

You can choose from a large range of additional option choices (25+) within PAIS, with further approved modules available from other Warwick departments. This allows you to take the course in your own direction and to explore areas such as European policy, global policy, policy and security, public policy, policy and development.
