What Sets Us Apart

The Pardee RAND Graduate School in Santa Monica, California—one of the nation’s oldest public policy graduate programs—offers both master's and doctorate degrees in policy analysis. Founded in 1970, it's also the only program based at an independent public policy research organization—the RAND Corporation.
