Course summary

The MPhil in Public Policy provides an interdisciplinary grounding in public policy theory and practice, with courses encompassing everything from economics and statistics through to the politics of policymaking and beyond.

The course is aimed at students who wish to have a leading role in government, companies or NGOs. The blend of theory and practice will help students to understand the mix of hard and soft skills they will need to be effective policy entrepreneurs and students will leave the course having expanded and strengthened their policy analysis and implementation skills.

The MPhil in Public Policy is primarily a professional Master's course.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course students will be expected to have:

  • an appreciation of the political and legal context of policy-making;
  • an understanding of the economic and evidence aspects of policymaking; and
  • a solid grounding in the theory, practical tools and skills required for the implementation of policies.
