The Master of Local Government provides professionals, managers and leaders in local government with an advanced body of knowledge and skills to reflect critically on theory and practice. This enables them to apply this knowledge in their roles in strategic thinking, planning and shaping local communities.
The course provides graduates with an evidence-based learning approach to build a high level of influence and leadership in their local government workplace. The course, which is informed by the research and capacity-building activities of the UTS Centre for Local Government, provides an interdisciplinary program with teaching and learning activities ranging across and beyond the faculty. An education program is developed to match the requirements of each participant’s individual requirements, and subjects can be studied through intensive block release or in some cases through online delivery mode.
