Public policy professionals

Policy affects every aspect of our lives from education and climate to health care and national security. Whether you work for the government, a nonprofit organization, or a business, making sure you are up-to-date on the latest policies is crucial to protecting interests and implementing change.

For over 38 years, UCLA Extension has been training professionals in public policy through the annual Land Use Law and Planning Conference, CEQA seminars, as well as climate policy, education policy, health care policy, and food justice courses. Our classes teach real-world public policy. Learn from instructors who bring their deep knowledge and experience as working public policy professionals into the classroom.
