Course summary

This double degree programme is designed for students interested in the MSc International Social and Public Policy, but who also desire an even more internationalised experience by studying in two contrasting country contexts (UK and China) over two years.

In year 1, students pursue the MSc in International Social and Public Policy at LSE in London, followed by a Masters in Management in Public Policy at Fudan University in Shanghai. Upon successful completion of the 2-year programme, students are awarded two Master’s degrees – one from LSE and another from Fudan University.

The first year at LSE will introduce students to the key ideas, concepts, and theories for the study of international social and public policy.

The second year at Fudan is composed of core courses (with an emphasis on social policy and processes in China), basic courses (on Chinese government and governance and Chinese language), and electives courses (with an emphasis on social policy issues of particular import to China and the developing world generally).

All instruction, both at LSE and Fudan, is in English. However, students will have the opportunity to take an introductory course in Mandarin during the year at LSE; and there will be further opportunities for Chinese language study during the year at Fudan.

The programme aims to:

• Provide students with systematic understanding of international social and public policy that is broadly relevant and appropriately nuanced for countries in the Global North and the Global South, such as China; identify the multifaceted sources of social problems and how various stakeholders, governments and non-governments alike, attempt to address them.

• Familiarise students with different theoretical and frames and enable them to critically assess and apply such lenses to help explain current problems and issues of import to social policy scholars and practitioners.

• Develop students’ knowledge and appreciation for different research skills, techniques and methodologies prevalent in the studies of social and public policy, as well as the practical ability to apply them.
