Course summary

Focused on critical issues and key developments relating to public policy, this course examines globalisation, Europeanisation, governance and policy analysis and evaluation.

Overview

With the current developments around the world, this is one of the most exciting times to be studying the public sector, governance and government, and the delivery of services to meet people's needs. You will have the opportunity to study policy development, implementation and evaluation across a wide range of policy sectors (such as health, food, education) and countries.

We aim to provide you with the skills, knowledge and tools to make sense of the world of public policy and management, so that you can critically analyse situations and problems, and use this to improve practice.

This course is designed to blend practitioner and academic perspectives on public policy, and the wide range of modules draw on examples from around the world.

It features international curricula focusing on key public sector developments in the UK, EU, USA and other countries and is informed by world-leading research, reflecting the expertise of staff in the fields of public management, policy analysis and social policy.

Careers

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.

Graduates have pursued careers in the public and voluntary sectors as public sector managers and policy analysts.

Our graduates move into a wide range of careers following their time in the school. Studying at postgraduate level can give you a head start in the job market by helping you to gain new knowledge and develop vital skills.
