The Pardee RAND Graduate School (PRGS) is unique in American higher education. It is the largest public policy analysis Ph.D. program in the nation and the only program based at an independent public policy research organization—the RAND Corporation. Faculty is largely drawn from the RAND Corporation and offers exceptional training and access to some of the world's leading policy practitioners.
All PRGS students receive fellowships to cover their education costs and engage in research projects that provide on-the-job training. Admission to the PRGS is possible with a Bachelor’s degree. Along the way, students receive an M.Phil. in public policy analysis—equivalent to a master's degree in public policy (MPP). Graduates leave with a Ph.D. in policy analysis and essentially two years of full-time work experience.
PRGS students want to make a difference in the world by helping to shape and lead public policy. PRGS graduates go on to jobs in government, in the private sector, at universities and other research organizations, and in the non-profit sector. One hundred percent of the 2009-2011 graduates found a job in the field of their choice.
