Joint Degree Programs

Master of Dispute Resolution/Master of Public Policy (MDR/MPP)

Public Policy students

The Master of Public Policy and Master of Dispute Resolution (MPP/MDR) degree program is a joint program between the School of Public Policy and the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution of the School of Law, which has been recognized as one of the top dispute resolution programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report.

This joint degree program is designed to strengthen and perfect the preparation of those whose successful leadership depends on a fuller understanding and a stronger skill set for addressing issues of public policy in the practice of law or in the interface between the private business sector and an increasingly complex government presence. Possessing a commitment to subsidiary and grassroots problem solving within a community that is reflective of Pepperdine’s Christian heritage, the program addresses the management of nonprofit associations and foundations, understanding that at times, they may depend heavily on a carefully tended relationship with government or may be expected to provide social services on behalf of the government.
