All electives will be taught in the second year, and comprise 21 of the 72 credits of the programme. Elective courses aim to serve three purposes. First, the courses should help to deepen and widen knowledge in core sectors that comprise the Public Policy and Governance domains. Second, the courses will be designed to help students to understand the sectoral practices and contexts in a manner that will ease their transition into the ‘real world’. And third, electives will aim to offer perspectives from the ‘inside’ of the policy and governance worlds, i.e. knowledge that is developed within practitioner spaces not immediately accessible to academic engagement. Courses focused on water and sanitation, urban governance, land governance, social enterprises, development finance, legal system reform, technology and citizenship, and energy sufficiency are currently being developed as elective offerings.
