The Pepperdine School of Public Policy was founded almost two decades ago as a response to what was being offered on the policy school landscape. While many programs offer a technocratic approach to policy development, we invite students to consider the multiple dimensions that affect actual policy implementation. This demands a most unique curriculum, including coursework in policy analysis along with understanding policy's moral and distinctly American elements. It's an exciting time to consider a career in public service. We offer its most unique preparation.
This fall, our interactive discussion series has a line-up of practitioners, journalists, innovators, and researchers who will speak on a wide range of issues from state and local finance to the use of technology in government to the outlook for cities in a state budget crisis and more.
