Course Summary

This Master's degree in politics, policy and management is ideal if you are working, or seeking a career, in public policy research and implementation. You will gain an advanced understanding of the ideas, interests and institutions that contribute to the making of policy across a wide range of areas, including healthcare, society and social care, migration, the environment, education and macroeconomics. This programme will give you insights into how policy choices are made, in comparison to policy developing by default, without clear choices or the establishment of priorities and strategies. Alongside this, you will also consider management in the public sector, analysing the issues involved in making decisions about how public services are managed.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates can pursue careers in government, policy research and higher education. Possible professions include charity officer, Civil Service administrator, or policy researcher. This degree can also be useful in becoming a journalist, human resources officer, or public affairs consultant.

Your dissertation topic must be relevant to your degree programme and approved in advance by your programme director. To receive approval, you must submit a dissertation proposal form and await confirmation from your programme director. Although you will conduct research for your dissertation independently, you will be assigned a supervisor by your programme director for advice and guidance via workshops and supervision meetings.
