Program Description

Master of Local Government

University of Technology Sydney

The course provides graduates with an evidence-based learning approach to build a high level of influence and leadership in their local government workplace. The course, which is informed by the research and capacity-building activities of the UTS Centre for Local Government, provides an interdisciplinary program with teaching and learning activities ranging across and beyond the faculty. An education program is developed to match the requirements of each participant's individual requirements, and subjects can be studied through intensive block release or in some cases through online delivery mode.

The education and professional development provided through the Master of Local Government aims to meet individual needs and provide opportunities for local government practitioners who wish to broaden their knowledge and skills, underpinned with a strong foundation in public service and democratic values and principles. On completion of the course, graduates have a sound understanding of current issues in local government and in diverse communities, as well as an ability to relate this knowledge back to their own workplaces. They gain research and scholarship competencies that allow them to continue their own professional development through short courses or further academic study, including at doctoral level.

The course is highly suited to professionals wishing to progress their careers as senior managers and leaders of local councils. It is also highly recommended for public administrators and policymakers from other tiers of government, and managers from the non-government sector who partner on a regular basis with local government and wish to better understand the principles and practices of local governance.
