¿Qué aprenderé?

Course overview

The Master of Public Administration is the most-widely recognised professional graduate management qualification for the public and third sectors. Our Master of Public Administration (MPA) gives you the professional skills needed for careers in local, regional and national government, and the public, public-private, and not-for-profit sectors.

The course deepens your understanding of the policy process, research methods, and contemporary issues in the public, public-private and third sectors.

The MPA combines the core study of public administration alongside practical and contemporary examples from cognate disciplines such as public policy, politics, international relations and law. By considering overlapping public administration and policy discussions, this course takes a holistic approach applying key theories, literature and debate to everyday practice.

You also consider the development and intersections of key aspects of public policy such as health, welfare, crime, education and housing to prepare you for careers in government, public-private partnerships, and the voluntary, community, and social enterprise sectors.

How you learn

The course uses a variety of teaching methods including seminars, tutorials and negotiated projects, with an emphasis on participatory and active learning. A variety of teaching and learning strategies afford you the opportunity to engage with different source material, audiences and potentially stakeholders. You are taught by a range of research-active academic staff, ranging from lecturers to professors.

How you are assessed

Modules are continuously assessed so you receive regular feedback to help you develop your knowledge, skills and abilities. Summative assessment includes a research proposal, presentation, policy brief, negotiated project, standard essay and a 15,000 word dissertation, in-class presentations, supervisory discussion and draft work. Assessed work will be marked according to University timelines, and feedback given electronically and in project tutorials. Across these assessments there is a strong emphasis on employability through the acquisition of a wide range of transferrable skills.

Career opportunities

The Master of Public Administration greatly benefits those working within, or seeking to work in the public, public-private and third sectors to engage critically with policy problems and solutions.

Graduates are well placed to work in private sector consultancy, non-governmental organisations, international organisations, and public sector employment, government or local government, as well as the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
