It introduces key concepts and theories for understanding the foundation of public policies, incentives and constraints governing the process of policy making, as well as the political realities faced by private and public sector institutions. The Essex MPP introduces students to all aspects of the policy process, including policy formulation, implementation and evaluation. It showcases the role of interest groups and civil society in all stages of this process and helps them analyse the politics that underlie policy adaptation.

This MPP course is suitable for those pursuing careers in making, implementing or shaping public policies in the public sector, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector, both nationally and globally.
