Masters in Governance and Public Policy
The Masters in Governance and Public Policy provides a fascinating insight into the challenges of governing in the twenty-first century.
At the heart of this program is a focus on the transition from 'government' to 'governance' and the implications this shift has for how we understand the capacity of the state, the role of politicians, the expectations of the public and the balance between rights and responsibilities when it comes to collective benefits. The transition from 'government' to 'governance' is also a feature of the international system, having begun with the League of Nations, progressed on to the United Nations and the International Financial Institutions such as the IMF, World Bank and World Trade Organisation.
The program is designed to test students through a range of teaching formats that include guest lectures and case study exercises. As a whole, it provides students with a number of conceptual tools and practical skills that will provide a strong basis for a career in the policy-making arena.
