Course summary

Our MRes Public Policy and Management is ideal if you are working, or seeking a career, in public policy research and implementation. You will gain an advanced understanding of the ideas, interests and institutions that contribute to the making of policy across a wide range of areas, including healthcare, society and social care, migration, the environment, education and macroeconomics.

This programme will give you insights into how policy choices are made, in comparison to policy developing by default, without clear choices or the establishment of priorities and strategies. Alongside this, you will also consider management in the public sector, analysing the issues involved in making decisions about how public services are managed.

You will explore how the different parts of national and local government interact and how the private sector is involved in the implementation of public policy. Overall, you will acquire the essential skills needed for the systematic analysis of government policies and for the professional practice of policy formulation and implementation.

The programme is highly topical, considering up-to-the-minute concerns and real-world debates within contemporary UK politics, while the qualitative and quantitative research methods training will give you the formal skills to commission, assess and implement research as public policy.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in government, policy research and higher education. Possible professions include charity officer, Civil Service administrator, or policy researcher. This degree can also be useful in becoming a journalist, human resources officer, or public affairs consultant.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
