What Sets Us Apart

The Pardee RAND Graduate School—one of the nation’s oldest public policy graduate programs—offers both master's and doctorate degrees in policy analysis as well as a Master of National Security Policy. With campuses in Santa Monica, CA, and Arlington, VA, we are also the only program based at an independent public policy research organization—RAND.
