Public and Social Policy

Public and Social Policy

The Public and Social Policy (PSP) doctoral programme prepares students for both basic and applied research, university-level teaching, as well as other activities requiring a high level of theoretical and methodological education in public and social policy. During the course of the programme, students are evaluated on research participation, publication activities, passing obligatory or advisor-recommended courses (above all, the Doctoral Seminar, Introduction into Philosophy, and Methodology of Science), teaching activities, and other field work for the Department of Public and Social Policy, ISS.

PSP graduates are qualified to teach public and social policy at all levels as well as pursue pertinent research work. Relevant jobs are available at colleges in the Czech Republic and elsewhere (with some PSP alumni already working at colleges abroad). Further options include qualified policy analysis and policy design in diverse fields (family, education, etc.) as analysts or advisors; work in politics, public administration, or the civil sector.
