Master of Regulation and Governance


CRICOS course code: 103373C
Level of study: Postgraduate

The Master of Regulation and Governance (MREGG) is a unique degree that equips students and their organisations to navigate environments where complexity, catastrophic risk, and transformative technologies are reshaping the ways in which we govern and regulate. Graduates from this program will be working in – or will join – government or private sector organisations charged with designing and applying regulatory policy solutions to pressing social problems, often in partnership with diverse stakeholders. Core courses provide students with a solid foundation in the concepts, processes, institutions and practice of regulation and governance. Elective courses provide case-studies, simulations and clinics in which to examine domains such as climate, crime, environment, health, Indigenous Australia, justice, safety, technology and urban design. All the courses are interactive and ask how regulation and governance is created and by whom – and for what purpose, with an emphasis on how to better anticipate catastrophe, manage risk and provide equitable social outcomes. It draws on the evidence-based research and the ‘big ideas’ in regulation and governance for which the ANU’s RegNet academics are world famous. MREGG students join an education program at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) that emphasizes interdisciplinary skills-building, our place in Asia and the Pacific, a stimulating curriculum, master classes with distinguished practitioners, global networks and multiple career pathways.
