Course summary

Course overview

You only have to look at the headlines to understand issues with things like food, health, education, and poverty that are faced on a daily basis by society. Governments implement public policies to ensure people's needs are met. However, these policies are not always seen to be beneficial to all communities.

On this course, you'll understand how policies are developed, managed, implemented and evaluated, with examples from all over the world. You'll also be encouraged to challenge existing theories and concepts. You'll be taught by active researchers and influencers in areas of public management, policy analysis and social policy.

Your knowledge will help you in your career to improve practice and potentially the lives of thousands of people. Some of our graduates have pursued careers in the public and voluntary sectors as managers and policy analysts.

Students can also exit with PGDip awards.

Graduate destinations

If you have previously studied politics, sociology, law, geography, finance, economics or a science subject, this course enables you to further your knowledge for a career in the broad policy community. It is also suitable if you are already working in the public or not-for-profit sector and wish to enhance your career prospects.

Our postgraduates have pursued careers in the public and voluntary sectors as public sector managers and policy analysts and gone on to work for organisations such as:

  • Stonewall
  • Youth Movement for Reform Judaism and Zionism
  • Nottingham Labour Party
  • Ministry of Justice
  • Mitsubishi
  • Sky
  • Taylor Wessing
