Gain an insight and understanding of the political landscape of Wales post devolution.

Due to devolution and distinctive historical and cultural factors, Welsh politics is a fascinating and fast-evolving topic of study. For those with an academic or professional interest in politics and policy, our MSc Econ Welsh Government and Politics programme provides an informed insight and understanding of the political landscape of Wales.

This unique course benefits from the close links that exist between Cardiff University and the institutions of devolved government in Wales.

This programme is designed to help you develop a comprehensive understanding of the institutions and practices of governance in post-devolution Wales. In addition to focusing on politics and governance in Wales, the course locates developments in Wales in a broader UK and European context, providing also an overview of relationships between the various levels of governance.

Our programme poses challenging questions and provides an informed insight into, and understanding of, Wales’ governance and constitution; one which is based on a distinctive history, policy-making processes since devolution and a constantly developing civil society capacity.
