Some of the best learning opportunities for our students can occur outside the classroom. This is why the Political Science Department is proud to sponsor educational field trips to the California State Legislature and California State Supreme Court. Students learn more about these important institutions of California government, how they operate, and how they shape law and politics in the state. Student participants are often inspired to learn more; many pursue internships or careers in public service as a result of their field trip experiences. Please be sure to visit our expeditions pages for information about upcoming trips.
