Study programme specification

The Master of Public Policy makes you a genuine all-rounder who understands the correlation between the state, society and economy. This interwoven context lies at the core of your study. You learn to analyse affairs from a political, macroeconomic and legal perspective alike. Therefore, you are qualified to deal with state policies in all spheres. Apart from the variety of academic disciplines you look into, you deepen your methodological skills. You learn to conduct high-level analyses – and more importantly, to derive politically sound decisions from their results.

Generally, the admission criterion at all universities is an accomplished undergraduate degree in political science, public administration or the social science. However, these criteria may differ at universities and colleges. Some education facilities use additional criteria or extensive application procedures. Hence, we advise you to always contact the university of your choice directly.

An accomplished Master of Public Policy facilitates your entry into a profession. However, the range of career prospects is rather wide. You may take up a career in research institutes or universities, media agencies, political parties, trade or labour unions, public institutions, international organisations, academies and life-long learning institutes.
