International Policy Specialisation

This specialisation is designed for students pursuing a wide range of careers that engage both domestic and international policy processes. It reflects the conviction that international and domestic policymaking are increasingly difficult, and often impossible, to disentangle.
The specialisation provides students with an opportunity to explore this nexus and to focus on policy arenas of particular interest to them. Elective courses within this specialisation cover a wide variety of issues, including: global and regional governance, international trade, foreign investment, energy, environmental regulation, social policy, and the nature of globalisation.
It is designed for students who are professionally engaged in policy making and administration with an international dimension or who take an interest in international policy.
