Program Description

Master of Applied Policy

University of Technology Sydney

The course is designed to have an applied focus which is theoretically underpinned. The course offers students the opportunity to work across industry sectors on real-world problems and to critically apply their learning to case studies drawn from UTS: IPPG's research program and their own workplaces to innovate solutions. It includes active approaches to learning, including debates, case studies, role plays, group discussions, presentations and guest speakers. All students undertake an individual research project, and gain the necessary knowledge and experience to engage in effective policy development, implementation and evaluation. The course offers a general policy stream focusing on professional practice, as well as major streams in local government studies; urban and regional policy; and social research. The core subjects of the course examine contemporary policy challenges; policy in practice; policy and resources and evidence and decision making. To tailor their course, students can choose their electives from a range of subjects from UTS: IPPG, the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building, and the UTS Business School. The course also offers a sub-major in Project Management. The course utilises several teaching formats, including intensive block mode and online delivery, designed by academics, practitioners and industry leaders. Most subjects are offered in flexible mode and delivered in blocks or online for more effective integration of study and work commitments.

This course was developed in response to the increased boundary-spanning of middle and executive management across government, industry and non-profit sectors. It is highly applicable to professionals working in a range of settings, including state and local government, planning, peak bodies, community and non-government organisations and sector-specific career professionals.
