About

The Public Policy program from Charles Darwin University is an opportunity to undertake a in-depth study in the field of public policy that culminates in a research project that seeks to explore issues of research in policy related fields. 

Overview

With a focus on northern Australia and its relation to South-East Asia you'll explore the policy issues in the region's remote contexts and the significance of Indigenous peoples and cultures, and its proximity to South-East Asia.

You will build the necessary knowledge and skills to engage in effective and ethical research for policy development. This course strengthens your in-depth understanding of the unique challenges and characteristics of "doing policy" in northern contexts.

You explore a variety of political, cultural and social theory approaches to public policy and gain a solid understanding of evidence-based policy development, evaluation, and empirical research theories and methodologies.

Choose from specialist electives that will develop your public policy knowledge in an area such as:

  • Indigenous policy
  • international education
  • governance and management
  • health
  • emergency and disaster management
  • environmental management.

You will apply this new knowledge in an important public policy research project of your choice. You will receive one-on-one supervision and support from university research, public policy researchers, policy developers and evaluators, and teaching staff.
