Mode of attendance: Online Learning

The MSc in Global Public Policy provides students with a detailed and systematic understanding of a range of explanations for change and continuity in public policymaking in an interdisciplinary, global context. Merging the study of public policy theory, global governance, global advocacy, international relations, political economy and diplomacy to interrogate policy processes beyond the nation state.

This programme puts at its heart the policy challenges of cross-cutting transnational issues in gender, climate change, resource geopolitics, nuclear proliferation, security and terrorism, sport, trade and economic governance. Students will be trained to critically evaluate and develop solutions for policy issues of global resonance that lay at the intersection of public, private and non-profit sectors.

Through its core modules, the programme covers key concepts and theories that enable critical analysis of a given policy space and the complex and fractious processes by which policy is formulated, adopted and implemented at multiple levels of political authority. Students will learn to be cognisant of the impact of relations of power, including those between the global North and South, and to question the assumptions inherent to conventional approaches to policy analysis and management.
