This MSc programme puts at its heart the policy challenges of cross-cutting transnational issues in gender, climate change, resource geopolitics, nuclear proliferation, security and terrorism, sport, trade and economic governance. Students will be trained to critically evaluate and develop solutions for policy issues of global resonance that lay at the intersection of public, private and non-profit sectors.
Through its core modules, the Global Public Policy (Online) programme from SOAS University of London covers key concepts and theories that enable critical analysis of a given policy space and the complex and fractious processes by which policy is formulated, adopted and implemented at multiple levels of political authority. Students will learn to be cognisant of the impact of relations of power, including those between the global North and South, and to question the assumptions inherent to conventional approaches to policy analysis and management.
Students from SOAS’s Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD) develop an in-depth understanding of international affairs, contemporary diplomatic practice and policy-makers. Graduates leave with a portfolio of transferable skills such as critical analysis, problem solving, negotiation and communication, all of which are valued by employers across a number of sectors.
