As a society we face many challenges in the years ahead. The way it has always been done is no longer acceptable. It will take great leaders to develop and implement innovative public policy solutions. The Pepperdine School of Public Policy is giving students the necessary tools to create those solutions and lead.

Operating in today's policy environment requires a mastery of several unique disciplines - economics, communications, philosophy, strategy development, and implementation. It is also critical to have a deep appreciation and understanding of the founding documents that created this great nation. With a core curriculum that blends these areas, the school trains its students to systematically review policy options, challenge conventional thinking, and innovate. In doing so, it effectively prepares students for the real world of policy analysis, development, and advocacy.
