Reasons to study Global Policy MA at DMU:
As our world faces unprecedented global policy challenges, from climate change to food and water supply, from migration to income inequality, the demand for agile and well-trained policy analysts and leaders is increasing rapidly.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide for the first time a genuine global policy agenda that will be the framework for the course, responding to DMU's Strategic Plan for 2018-2023, which defines our identity as "a twenty-first century global university...committed to the public good and driven by an unrivalled ability to challenge convention and create impact."
Drawing insights from both academics and policy practitioners, students will be poised to join a new generation of innovators, change-agents, and thought-leaders.
This course curriculum has as its key components:
- Six required core modules that provide the foundational knowledge and skills for effective policymaking.
- Three optional modules drawn from a rich and diverse list of offerings around the university that address specific policy areas such as globalisation, sustainability, urbanisation, public health, and social justice, among others;
In addition to the study of the political, economic, and social contexts of policy studies, the programme will also provide a multi-disciplinary set of tangible policy skills such as policy analysis, communications and presentation skills, and cross-cultural understanding built on substantive overseas study modules.
- A wide variety of modules
The course offers the opportunity to study a wider variety and greater number of modules than comparative degree programmes in other UK universities.
- Add global experience to your CV
You will have the opportunity to take part in #DMUglobal study week, with a targeted project, at the United Nations in New York during the January break, and a longer field study assignment in Thailand.
- Learn from global policy experts
Your instructors will be dynamic academic and research scholars, as well as experienced policy practitioners who will step away from their work to deliver practice-based modules.
- Excellent student experience
Students will be part of an engaged and committed learning community in which they are active participants and decision-makers, not merely customers for a fixed course delivered in hierarchical fashion.
At DMU, we are committed to helping our graduates enhance their careers and personal development through further study.
