About BSc International Social and Public Policy

This multi-disciplinary, international degree integrates the analysis of government policy with the understanding of broader global political, economic and social change. The central core of the BSc International Social and Public Policy is to explore, analyse and critically assess contemporary social and public policy issues in and across societies.

In the first year you will develop an understanding of key concepts and theories of comparative and international social and public policy. This enables a deeper understanding of the ways in which social, political and economic issues are shaped and responded to in different parts of the world.

In the second year you will explore policy making and implementation and comparative political economy in global, national and local contexts. You will also choose from optional units in a range of international policy areas and have the opportunity to undertake a work placement.

The final year dissertation offers an opportunity to choose a topic for in-depth investigation and independent work.
