Course content

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, this dynamic course will give you a detailed insight into the decision-making processes that govern our lives.

You'll graduate with the specialist expertise to conduct high quality research in public policy and administration. You'll be well supported as you develop the knowledge most desired by professionals for a career in policy advising, lobbying, political research, journalism and academia.
