Positive impact of public policy on social welfare requires consistency in defining the grounds and goals of policies, and clear explanations of the specific economic and social problems as well as the market deficiencies which the policy has been designed to solve. In this sense, specialization in public policies necessitates an interdisciplinary approach inspired by political science, public management, and economics. Furthermore, a competent program also needs to cover advanced econometric methods that are being used to assess the impact of public policy on social welfare. Sabancı University Public Policy MA Program offers an interdisciplinary approach and provides students with the latest tools of policy assessment. Graduates will have the expertise to work in the public as well as the private sector, the rapidly expanding think-thank and consultancy industries, or to pursue doctoral degrees in public policy or related fields of the social sciences.
