This interdisciplinary programme unites the expertise of three schools - the School of Sociology and Social Policy, the Business School and the School of Politics and International Studies, allowing you to study a broad range of modules which will enhance your knowledge of economics and management and policy analysis and give you a greater understanding of global and local challenges.
The programme will equip you with the necessary skills to take up a senior position in public administration. You will acquire a mastery of the diverse range of problems that public administration professionals face in the contemporary socio-economic climate and an in-depth understanding of the contested nature of a number of debates in social and public policy.
A key part of the programme is its vocational element which enables you to apply your acquired knowledge to real life situations through a work placement project. Throughout the work placement you will be exposed to a wide variety of the challenges, issues and problems that individuals engaged in public administration face and you will be supported to develop a project tailored to your own interests and career aspirations.
