Today's public leaders not only need to possess the tools of effective policy analysis,
but they must understand how these policies will be accepted and sustained by a public.
Pepperdine offers students that distinctively comprehensive curriculum, which contemplates
that there is, indeed, a "public" in public policy – one that must be both involved
and informed to form sustainable solutions.
Pepperdine's School of Public Policy takes a holistic approach to educating public
leaders – one that combines cutting-edge policy analysis with the enduring principles
found in classical literature and history.
