Policy and Governance

Choose from undergraduate courses, Masters and PhD degrees in Policy and Governance.

Policy and governance play key roles in shaping our lives.

At Sussex, we’re proud of our policy expertise in economics, climate and sustainability, development, migration studies, science, technology and innovation. During your studies, you’ll learn how to translate theories and innovation into effective policies and practices. When you graduate, you’ll be ready to become a policy-maker of the future.

Good governance should inform decision-making in the public and private sectors. It forms the basis of any high-performing, responsible and accountable organisation, and has the power to drive sustainable development and combat corruption. You’ll explore the role and form of good governance, as well as the problems created by weak governance, in different environments. This will help to prepare you for your future career.
