What will I learn?

Our MSc in Public Policy provides rigorous training in the analytical frameworks and methods required in the study of public policy. It’s ideal for those wanting professional skills to become a policy practitioner, analyst or to proceed to a PhD. You’ll explore the various methodological tools and their connections to real world problems facing governments and related organisations. You’ll learn a range of key skills including: analytical and critical thinking, research management, data analysis, report writing and presentation.

Assessment
