Programme Structure and Content

You’ll take four core modules, and choose two other modules from a suite of options, followed by a Policy Analysis Exercise. An innovative departure from the traditional dissertation, this Policy Analysis Exercise — which can be linked to your employment — is an opportunity for you to work on real policy problems set by public organisations.

Programme Aims and Objectives

  • Viewing public policy analysis as the technology to the science of social science is central both to the delivery of courses and to student assessment.
  • The course prepares students to perform, understand and communicate professional policy analysis in the public sector and sectors working to it.
  • Along with online lectures, the programme employs problem-based learning (PBL) — this involves you becoming versed in the most up-to-date aspects of and science behind a relevant discipline, observing these elements in operation by working through case studies, and then using the knowledge gained to solve set problems.
  • To prepare you for the working world, you’ll be prompted to collaborate with other students to define problems, identify relevant data to solve these and divide work in fair and efficient ways.
