Seminar in Political Issues (Selected Topics)

MPP 647

(1–3 units)

This course will consider different political issues from year to year. It will involve students in cutting-edge policies while they are in the formative stage and consider tradeoffs between the common good and the rights of the individual as well as the relationship with state and federal governments and the private sector. Upon the approval of the faculty of the School of Public Policy, an upper-division or graduate-level course from one of the other schools at Pepperdine University may be taken in place of this course. This requires a written proposal submitted to the Office of the Dean four weeks in advance of the start of the term in which the course will be taken, and the student must be in good academic standing, free of probation.
