Introduction

Advances in science and technology continue to transform the way we live. This makes designing effective policies for science and technology a priority for governments worldwide. The challenge is not just to advance science and technology, but to set directions and priorities for their development.

On the Science and Technology Policy (with a professional placement year) MSc, you’ll learn about the language, logic and tools of policy formulation and analysis. You’ll be taught by world-leading researchers and scholars, and benefit from the global networks enjoyed by the University of Sussex Business School and SPRU – Science Policy Research Unit.

You’ll investigate science and technology policy challenges, and learn to evaluate and recommend policy solutions. This includes:

  • frameworks and tools to understand the complex dynamics of policy development;
  • critiquing and contributing to science, technology and innovation policy and industrial strategy;
  • analysing science, technology and innovation policy using an array of methodologies, from a number of perspectives.
