Why study the Master of Governance and Public Policy?

The Master of Governance and Public Policy focuses on issues of governance and analyses how society deals with challenges and policy problems, often by combining the resources of government, private and community sectors. Students develop practical knowledge combined with high level research skills and a critical, enquiring approach to questions of governance and policy development in the new millennium. Students will be exposed to leading thinkers and debates in the public, private and community sectors, and will develop capacities to enhance effectiveness in the workplace and gain a better understanding of the way governments operate as well as the major public issues confronting our society.
