The Masters in Public Policy allows you to develop the conceptual, analytical and practical skills you’ll need to redefine the world of policymaking. We prepare you for a career in the public sector and vocations that make a contribution to the development or delivery of public policy.
This course is extremely flexible, and you can tailor it to fit your particular interests. Core modules on Policy Theory and Practice are combined with optional modules in Social Research and policy-relevant disciplines.
If you want to pursue an interest in other policy-relevant disciplines, you can also combine a focus on policy and research with options in areas such as: law; economics and behavioural science; strategic communications; international politics.
A minimum of a second class honours degree (2:1 preferred) or equivalent. Applicants without these formal qualifications but with significant appropriate/relevant work/life experience are encouraged to apply.
If you don’t currently meet the academic requirements for this course, INTO University of Stirling offers a variety of preparation programmes that can earn you the qualifications and skills you need for direct entry.
