USC Price School of Public Policy

Public Policy and Law Track

Public Policy and Law Track

At USC Price we understand that government plays a crucial part in solving society’s problems. America and the world need a new generation of leadership that will create effective, evidence-based policies that efficiently and equitably confront our society’s and our globe’s problems.

Students choosing this track will be introduced to the policy-making system, learn to formulate, analyze, and evaluate policies, and engage in specific topical classes in crucial policy areas, such as crime, health, and economic development. Students will gain the skills they need to move on to graduate programs in law or public policy or to enter an agency position or help an organization advocate for change.
