Public Policy as an academic field focuses on the study and analysis of government policies and their impact on society. It involves understanding the formulation, implementation, and evaluation of policies that address various social, economic, and political challenges. Public policy professionals play a vital role in shaping government decisions and advocating for evidence-based solutions to improve public welfare and address societal issues effectively.

Public policy professionals are instrumental in addressing societal challenges, such as healthcare reform, environmental protection, education policy, poverty alleviation, and social justice. As governments and organisations continue to grapple with complex issues, the demand for skilled public policy experts will remain high, making it a rewarding and impactful career path for individuals passionate about shaping public outcomes and making positive societal changes.
