MPP

All the details on the University’s website are here and the summary is here (although please note that, unless something changes, I will not be in charge of the MPP for 2020-21)

Master of Public Policy programme handbook 19-20

You can also get an idea of the content from two of the core MPP modules:

1. In the first semester, we focus on policy concepts and the ‘nuts and bolts’ of policymaking.

Module guide 2019: MPPPP01 2.8.19

[Note: I wrote a draft book – The Politics of Policy Analysis – with this module in mind. See Policy Analysis in 750 Words]

2. In the second semester, we examine a wide range of theories and concepts in political science, and compare them to interdisciplinary approaches (in, for example, psychology and economics). There is a complete introduction to these concepts here:   https://paulcairney.wordpress.com/1000-words/ and here: https://paulcairney.wordpress.com/500-words/

3. The MPP Dissertation is 60 credits, or the equivalent of a full (third) semester.
