Program Description:

Regulatory growth and reform, like privatisation, has been an international 'policy boom' in recent years. Governments have increasingly used regulation in preference to other policy instruments. Regulation therefore plays a central role in the contemporary understanding of law and public policy. As a field of study, regulation requires a multi-disciplinary approach, because legal, political and economic issues are intertwined and each has to be understood to make sense of the overall process. The MSc Regulation is a truly interdisciplinary programme. You take a core seminar on Law and Politics of Regulation and then have the opportunity to specialise through your choice of options and your dissertation topic. If you take two full courses (or equivalent) or either a full course and a dissertation in one of the specialisms listed below, you may have this specialism included in your degree title, for example, MSc Regulation (Environmental Regulation).
