Graduate Diploma in Public Policy

Discover how to make real change at a foundation level though this unique course sitting at the intersection of public policy and theory. Developed and led by internationally-renowned academics, you will learn the skills to be at the forefront of policy development challenges relevant to diverse business, professional and public policy communities.

Set in a multidisciplinary field, you’ll develop your leadership capacity for working with multicultural teams in intercultural environments. Your advanced critical thinking and analytical skills will be indispensable for delivering innovative solutions to policy-related challenges for both professional and non-professional audiences. On completion of the course, you will be well-versed in applying your knowledge to real-world policy-related challenges.

This course is particularly designed to focus on themes relevant to change-makers wanting to work in policy areas across both the public and private sectors, from government organisations, multi-nationals through to independent consultancies, and those wishing to develop expertise in public policy theory and practice. It is designed to ensure you will have the industry-level skills needed to hit the ground running, such as developing and supporting arguments, advance communication, research skills, and an understanding of the possibilities and challenges of public policy practice and reform.

The Graduate Certificate of Public Policy offers practical knowledge and skills for careers in a range of policy making, governance and management sectors. You will develop essential skills in critical thinking, writing and presentation in multicultural settings which are designed to enhance learning success and career capabilities.

The program develops a robust critical understanding of public and social policy which can be brought to a wide range of problems and applications. You will feel confident applying your knowledge to real-world professional contexts after the seminar and field trips, industry site reports and practice based units.

At the end of the course, you will be able to continue studies in the discipline with the Master of Public Policy.
