Pepperdine is committed to preparing students for lives of service, purpose and leadership. School of Public Policy Students are required to complete 240 hours of policy-related internships. The required 240-hour Public Policy Internship should be selected in an agency related to the student's area of specialization and must be completed prior to the second semester of the second year. Such agencies may be in local, state, or federal government; nonprofit organizations; the private sector, or an international experience in a non-U.S. setting to prepare for foreign service after graduation. The Public Policy internship should provide a perspective on how the methods and theories learned in the cases studied in the classroom may find practical expression in non-textbook and complex real-life settings.
