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
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.
