Máster en Políticas Públicas

Plan de Estudios

The teaching format involves on-campus classes that stimulate students' participation as well as individual tutorials in order to make the relationship with teachers more personal. Students must carry out a personal piece of coursework, tutored by teaching staff.

The course syllabus presents an innovative structure specifically designed to stimulate continuous learning. Courses are taught by IBEI's highly-qualified staff as well as world-class experts from the two universities that jointly offer the degree, the Universitat de Barcelona and Universitat Pompeu Fabra, and other major international academic institutions.

The syllabus is made up of a combination of core subjects and a wide range of electives that reflect the students' individual interests, comprising a total of 60 ECTS credits. The programme offers two specialisations: European Public Policy and Global Public Policy. Building on knowledge acquired in the first semester, in the second semester students will take a pathway specialty and, in this way, build their education according to their individual interests within the different Public Policy themes.

During their second semester of studies, students can choose one of the following two pathways:

In addition, IBEI is offering concentrations, suggested groups of four or five elective courses and a pathway course that combine to give a clear focus on Public Policy and Globalization or European Studies. Students may choose how many of the electives to take and may also choose freely from across all of the electives on offer.
