Public Policy from Pepperdine University is committed to nurturing leaders who can use these tools to effect real change, not only in government agencies, but also in the private and nonprofit sectors.
Beyond useful tools, success in a career in public policy requires critical insights produced only by a broad understanding of the history and philosophy undergirding free institutions and an exposure to great ideas, courageous thinkers, and extraordinary leaders. It is based on the conviction that culture and personal moral certainties are also the valid concern of higher education—in fact, an important foundation for analysis. This significant and unique perspective is reflected in our "James Q. Wilson Curriculum," unashamedly setting it apart from many other public policy programs.
Public Policy from Pepperdine University is traditionally training students to be analysts, helping to design effective government programs.
