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; foundations in public policy and evidence and influence in public policy. 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.

Career options include public, not-for-profit or private sector agencies involved in policy, programs and service delivery.
