This degree provides an opportunity for working professionals to equip themselves with relevant knowledge and gain skills to pursue higher responsibilities in policy making and leadership in public and corporate lives.

What makes MA Public Policy (Online) from JSGP unique?

MA Public Policy is an interdisciplinary approach to studying how to analyse contemporary issues. JSGP public policy professionals achieve a mastery of different technical disciplines. Acquiring and applying the knowledge gleaned from an array of social science disciplines, including economics, history, sociology, and political science is the hallmark of public policy practitioners, rather than limiting study to only one. Most importantly, JSGP graduates will have the skills to ensure that the public policies and processes they implement are both in compliance with ethical norms sustaining the public interest and fully cognizant of people’s freedom and dignity.


MA Public Policy graduates are equipped to work on development and policy making roles in the government, civil services, CSR groups, academia, think tanks, NGOs, media and political organisations.


Through the online M.A. in Public Policy programme, you’ll take a research-intensive approach to studying and analysing contemporary global politics, economics, and social issues, with a key focus on grass-root level challenges in developing economies. The degree enables its students to learn from top faculty, policy practitioners, and researchers at the forefront of public policy today, and develop qualitative analytical skills, receive exposure to the real-world policymaking process, and enhance their managerial skills.
