Why study Public Policy?

Undergraduate study in Public Policy is covers issues of modern governance in general, and examines the institutions and processes of public policy in particular. Public policies give expression to the authoritative aims and actions of governments and agencies of the state. The making and implementing of public policy is the core function of the modern state. The main focus is on the political, institutional, economic, social and ideological forces that shape Australian governance and public policy. The main aims of the Honours year are: To enable students with an adequate background in Public Policy to pursue further study in one specialist area in more depth than is possible with a pass degree; To enhance students' capacity for independent research and to acquire research skills appropriate to their area of specialisation; To train to a standard sufficient for enrolment in postgraduate research degrees, and for a specialist career.
