Hi, I am doing IR and Economics as undergraduate second year. I am considering to do a master degree later on, possibly one of the three areas mentioned above( IR/Public Policy/ Social Policy). However, I don't really know the difference between Public policy and social policy. Can anyone tell me more about it?Please give some advice to me on how to choose if you got insights of them. Thank you so much.

Social policy is one branch of public policy, so it is more specific on a policy area. This is the main difference. In terms of master's, while public policy is often a combination of political science and economics (for most), social policy tends to have a greater involvement of sociology departments (even if this is not always true and depends on which uni we are looking at). So if your interest is specific on social policy, it might be a good idea to directly focus upon it. If you are instead interested in policy analysis in general, PP might be a better fit. As you are already studying IR guess there is not much you need to know on it.
