Course content

Our MSC Policy Analysis & Global Governance course is underpinned by high-quality training in social science research methodologies and work-related learning.

It will provide you with in-depth knowledge and expertise in public policy analysis within an international and comparative context.

In an era of global governance and global crises our course will equip you with the skills necessary to investigate and evaluate the ways in which a variety of state and non-state actors come together to address global problems such as:

  • Climate change
  • Human rights issues
  • Health inequalities
  • Terrorism
  • Migration.


You will investigate the ways in which a variety of state and non-state actors come together to address global problems (such as climate change, human rights issues, health inequalities, terrorism and migration). The programme also involves understanding the roles of international organisations and networks and how these operate in the context of multilevel governance.
