Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Overzicht

The Public Policy and Governance track prepares students to meet demands for effective and legitimate public action in complex and often controversial political settings.


The programme helps students develop as critical analysts and innovative designers by linking research and practice, theory and action on the 'shop floor' on the local, national, European, and international levels. Opportunities are provided to study policy work at and across these levels.
* Are you interested in how problems become political and prompt public action?
* Do you wonder about how the professionals and public officials responsible cope with the complex and changing demands that these problems set?
* Do you want to learn more about how learning and innovation develop as public policy is made and implemented?
Then the Master's programme in Public Policy and Governance might be the perfect programme for you.
