For an era marked by political polarization and distrust of our governing institutions, the Pepperdine School of Public Policy prepares public leaders who can work across differences and across sectors to create sustainable policy solutions. Through a distinctive curriculum shaped by the late, great social scientist, Dr. James Q. Wilson, over two decades ago, our students learn to not only consider the quantitative aspects of policy decisions, but to also analyze politics from historical, philosophical, and faith perspectives—to employ what Dr. Wilson called our "moral sense." The need to humanize our politics and policymaking has never been greater, which is why we say from our breathtaking campus, our students "will see public policy differently from here."
