Course content

From the practical to the controversial, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the factors and contexts that determine a diverse range of domestic and international policies – and how those policies deliver the services we rely on.

This dynamic course provides you with the specialist expertise to conduct high quality research in public policy and administration. It will support and deliver the knowledge most desired by professionals for a career in policy advising, lobbying, political research, journalism and academia.

You’ll explore the key themes that drive the creation of public policies – how they are made, framed, brought to life and managed. What makes the cogs of international organisations turn? What are the motivations, ambitions and factors that are considered and acted upon to shape the world as we know it?

From patterns of global trade and finance to state restructuring and its consequences, it will give you a detailed insight into the decision-making processes that govern our lives.
