Course summary

This Master's of Public Administration (MPA) degree prepares future leaders and decision-makers across the public, private and third sectors to synthesise political and technical factors in order to effectively address issues like cyber security, the digital economy and online human rights. The MPA will tackle a series of pressing topics for policymakers, such as: are global agreements on cyber security realistic or necessary? how do we balance protection of human rights against the security of the Internet of Things? how can we reconsider approaches to policy-making in the rapidly evolving information age? Students also gain deep understanding of conceptual frameworks, policy tools and analytical methods to implement, evaluate and revise public policies through a series of core modules.

Careers

This MPA degree prepares graduates to step into leadership and decision-making roles in government, technology companies, think tanks, and consultancies that engage with issues like cyber security, the digital economy, the Internet of Things, Internet governance and online human rights.

Employability

Throughout the MPA programme, students will: gain a greater awareness of current issues and developments in digital technology; develop an understanding of the knowledge systems underpinning successful policy-making processes; learn how to communicate with scientists and engineers, policymakers and technology experts; develop the skills to mobilise public policy, and science and engineering knowledge and expertise, to address societal challenges.
