Master of Economics and Public Policy

University of Queensland, The (UQ)

The Master of Economics and Public Policy is an economics-centred, multidisciplinary program, designed to provide students with an opportunity to understand how government intervention affects the economy in an increasingly globalised world. The program focuses on the economic analytical tools needed to design and evaluate public policies. Core courses in public economics, regulatory economics, and microeconomic and macroeconomic analysis emphasise the rationale for government intervention and the theoretical framework that underpins the nature of such intervention. Elective courses include applied econometrics, economic development and health economics, and a range of policy oriented courses. The program also provides students with the necessary multidisciplinary approaches to deal with public policy problems, including elective courses in political sciences. No prior knowledge or training in economics is required for this program.
