Months of entry
The global financial crisis exposed flaws in the policymaking systems around the world, and very markedly in Ireland. In part, these flaws reflect the technical capacity of policymakers to do effective public policy analysis. This relationship is recognised by the Irish state, the EU, and other international bodies as they attempt to increase the number of professionally qualified policy specialists working with them.
In response DCU is offering a bespoke, interdisciplinary course designed to suit the needs of a new generation of policymakers—the MSc in Public Policy is a new type of professional degree with an intellectual base and methodological rigour that reflect the needs of a sector facing more nuanced and complex challenges.
