If you’re going to pursue a degree in policy, why not do it in a state capital? What makes Sacramento State’s program different from others like it is its focus on California state government. And you can experience policy and administration firsthand as a student. Maybe you’ll land a graduate assistantship with the College-to-Capital Research Project. Graduate assistants collect and summarize academic research and use it to write policy briefs that policymakers can easily understand and use. You could also apply for the Judicial Administration Fellowship to see what it’s like to work in a court. It’s part of the Capital Fellows program, which Vault.com ranked among the top 10 internship programs. Or you could apply for the Sacramento Semester Program. These students work at the Capitol developing policies, planning campaigns, writing press releases, and more—tasks that are vital to government operations. Who knows, you could end up interning in the governor’s press office or alongside a legislator! Like these students, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to graduate already experienced with in the inner workings of state government. Does Sacramento State get your vote?
