Course summary

The Master of Public Policy (MPP) is a one-year taught degree course. It enables you to develop analytical and critical skills relevant for understanding the challenges of public policy and its implementation. It also equips you with skills that are essential for effective policy delivery. The MPP begins with a carefully planned programme of activities during the induction period which provides an introduction to policymaking and advice on how to derive the greatest benefit from the MPP experience. The curriculum for the rest of the course is delivered via a series of lectures, seminars, case studies and workshops across three terms, culminating in a summer project at the end of the third term. You can expect to spend at least 300 hours of contact time. The curriculum integrates insights and approaches from a range of academic disciplines and also includes opportunities to learn skills from policy practitioners. The MPP prepares you to understand the challenges of working in public policy. The opportunity to develop and apply a range of skills throughout the course, alongside and complementary to the academic programme, enables you to master the key skills which are essential for effective public service, whether in government, non-governmental organisations or the private sector. The MPP is a degree for professionals that trains people to hone their skills in policymaking and analysis and is not designed to prepare you for research courses of study, such as the DPhil in Public Policy.
