OVERARCHING GOAL OF THE PROGRAM
The overarching aim of the program is to provide students with a solid grounding in key themes of public policy and policy analysis as well as practical and issue-oriented knowledge which will prepare students for their future roles as policy-makers, advisors, and analysts in governmental and non-governmental organizations. Through the courses included in the core curricula, students will gain a detailed and systematic understanding of how policy-making processes are shaped and influenced by both, actors and political institutions, and how public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels.
