    Hi,
    So I’m starting to applying to King’s for a masters, and I can’t decide between these 2 programmes! I want to work in policy/research for international NGOs, and I’m not sure which programme would be more appropriate/useful.
    War studies pro: department prestige, more specific
    PP pro: work experience, more broad for general policy work (but not so much for international affairs?)

    If anyone is on either course or had any advice I’d really appreciate it!!
    Thank you!

    Prestige doesn't mean much and the specificity might put you in a niche which may be difficult to get out of. I'd go with public policy but focus on where grads end up.
