USC Price School of Public Policy

MHA Prerequisites

The MHA faculty requires that all entering students demonstrate proficiency in relevant statistical methods. The statistics prerequisite can be satisfied in either one of two ways:

  • Statistics Course Taken Prior to Enrollment in the MHA
    Completion of a college-level statistics course with a grade of “B” or better taken within three years of matriculation in the MHA program
  • PPD 502x – Statistical Foundations for Public Management and Policy
    If students have not completed a college-level statistics course with a grade of “B” or better within three years of matriculation in the MHA program, they will need to enroll in PPD 502x and receive a grade of “B” or better.
