About this course

?The Public Policy and Global Affairs (PPGA) Programme at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) is an integral provider of public policy education in NTU.

The Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Public Policy and Global Affairs (PPGA) was introduced in 2013 to meet students’ growing interests and career aspirations in public administration and international relations, and to groom the next generation of public policy-makers. 

PPGA comprises ten faculty members with strong professional credentials who can undertake curricular development, teaching and cutting-edge research. Currently undergoing expansion, PPGA is committed to achieving excellence in both teaching and research, as well as the establishment of a lively and collegial intellectual milieu. Its research projects and efforts seek to enhance the scholarly understanding of political institutions and behaviour, public policy and administration, and the values and ethics of government.
