Course content

Evaluate politics and public policy at local, Welsh, UK, EU and international levels.
Our MSc Econ Politics and Public Policy programme is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of policy analysis and governance within a multi-level context – from local to international settings.
This programme will equip you with advanced analytical and conceptual skills to critically evaluate politics and public policy at multiple levels of governance. It also provides a thorough training in analytical methods and approaches (qualitative and quantitative) used for conducting research in these areas.
You’ll be provided with a range of modules designed to provide a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding in politics and public policy. You can choose modules of particular interest to you at local, Welsh, UK, EU and international levels.
Your learning activities will include student presentations and group work, designed to refine a range of transferable skills including communication, organisational and interpersonal skills.
You’ll benefit from our close ties to Wales’ devolved institutions as well as to the UK and Scottish levels of government. The School is also home to the Wales Governance Centre, the leading centre for the study of Welsh politics, law and political economy.
