About Political Economy and Public Policy at Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Manchester Metropolitan University

Just as political economy offers a window into the real world of economic activity, public policy provides the tools for shaping and influencing that activity - at a local, national and international level. For anyone looking ahead to a future in policy making, it's a powerful combination.

This masters course offers the chance to develop an advanced insight into today's political, social and economic issues, together with the policy-focused experience and research skills essential for understanding and creating the kind of public policy that touches lives and livelihoods. You will learn the process of crafting a response to a whole range of major issues, from economic development and productivity, to climate change, disruptive technology and new forms of inequality.

Whether you have just graduated - in politics, economics, geography, social policy or similar - or you're already working in policy development, our course offers the chance to take the next step. Because, as well as exploring theories around economic geography, local governance and the welfare state, you'll also get a practical perspective. You will learn from leading practitioners, covering the realities of policy-making institutions and processes, while you can even choose to take on a placement to gain experience of your own.

Put simply, this is a course with a real focus on professional impact - equipping you for a career in public policy or academic research.

    Testimonial from Tze Yan Lim, BA (Hons) Photography, student at Faculty of Arts and Humanities

    "I chose to study this course because I am passionate about every aspect of photography and choosing this course enabled me to explore all the possibilities of it. I studied the syllabus of the course and it suited my needs, plus the University has great facilities and helpful technicians and professors.

    The thing I enjoy most about my course is that I get to experiment with different approaches to making a photograph and I am always encouraged to embrace failure when making work. The course has helped me to prepare for my future career by helping me place myself into the broader environment of art-making.”

    "Every year our tutors bring people from the industry from different backgrounds; entrepreneurs, managers, industry experts, which has helped me to see what I could do in the future, as well as being a great opportunity to network and be inspired!

    The thing I love the most about Manchester Metropolitan is the amount of effort that is put into student support, no matter the issue, there will be someone willing to help. The international welcome week and all the activities that were related to it were remarkably helpful. I got to meet many people that were experiencing things similar to me."
