Course summary

The MSc in Policy Evaluation will provide students with the skills necessary to contribute to evidence-based policy across a range of exciting and dynamic fields.

Institutions and organizations are today commonly demanding evidence-based policy formation. As a result, the necessary social research methods for Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) are in high demand. The MSc in Policy Evaluation will equip graduates to provide programme monitoring and evaluation for government and third sector organisations by providing advanced skills in research design, qualitative and quantitative methods and data analysis. For the thesis component, instead of completing a traditional dissertation, students will have the option to work with a partner organization to produce a real M&E project with local government, a non-profit organisation, or within the University itself.

As noted above, demand for Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) professionals is expanding swiftly as requirements for evidenced-based policy formation gain traction. Qualified M&E professionals may work in the domestic market for governmental, non-governmental organizations or private industry in fields such as healthcare, education, transportation, social services, or other policy fields. Globally, M&E is a highly valued skill in fields such as international development, humanitarian relief, post-conflict statebuilding, peacebuilding, and transitional justice, as well as in all areas of international education and healthcare provision.

This MSc Programme builds on and further foster’s links with local governmental and non-governmental organizations in the vicinity of the University of Aberdeen, the city of Aberdeen, and Aberdeenshire.
