In our Politics and Policy program, you study the institutions, ideas and actors that influence the political process in the 21st century. You gain an understanding of governance, politics and public policy in the Australian context, as well as a comparative international perspective on how political challenges are addressed. This is invaluable background for professionals (researchers, civil servants, advisers or politicians), journalists and lawyers.
A core part of our program is Public Policy. In health, education, environment and welfare risk and regulation - what government does matters. Understanding how politics and policy work in tandem has never been more important. By studying with us you can gain extensive and specialist knowledge about how policy is shaped, developed and influenced.
Politics and Policy can be studied on campus or via distance education at UTAS.
