Study type Taught


As our world faces unprecedented global policy challenges, from climate change to food and water supply, from migration to income inequality, the demand for agile and well-trained policy analysts and leaders is increasing rapidly. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide for the first time a genuine global policy agenda that will be the framework for the course, responding to DMU's Strategic Plan for 2018-2023, which defines our identity as "a twenty-first century global university...committed to the public good and driven by an unrivalled ability to challenge convention and create impact."

Drawing insights from both academics and policy practitioners, students will be poised to join a new generation of innovators, change-agents, and thought-leaders.

This course curriculum has as its key components six required core modules that provide the foundational knowledge and skills for effective policymaking; three optional modules drawn from a rich and diverse list of offerings around the university that address specific policy areas such as globalisation, sustainability, urbanisation, public health, and social justice, among others; a field trip to New York with sessions at the United Nations and other key organisations working for global change; and a final project (“the Capstone Experience”) in Thailand during the summer term that gives student teams project challenges organized by a top non-governmental organization and other partners.

In addition to the study of the political, economic, and social contexts of policy studies, the programme will also provide a multi-disciplinary set of tangible policy skills such as policy analysis, communications and presentation skills, and cross-cultural understanding built on substantive overseas study modules.
