On a Mission
USC Price students are on a mission to accomplish bold visions. As deeply engaged global citizens, they ask difficult questions, challenge longstanding answers and seize each obstacle as a new opportunity. Most of all, they are leaders in their fields who are leveraging Price degrees to make a difference.
Price faculty are renowned for their expertise, depth of contributions to their fields, engagement with policy leaders at the local, state, national and international levels, and the actionable knowledge resulting from their work. We are proud to have faculty with expansive and diverse academic backgrounds – including economics, international relations, organizational behavior, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology, social ethics and more – that enhance their scholarship within the Price School’s core academic areas.
