UC Center Sacramento is the University of California’s teaching, research and public-service site located one block from the State Capitol Building. Operated by UC Davis, UCCS offers distinctive academic programs in public policy and journalism to students from throughout the university’s 10-campus system. These two programs provide students with an opportunity to study through seminars and internships in and around the state Capitol.
Since its founding in 2004, UCCS has enrolled more than 1,000 students, many of whom now are engaged in policy careers with all levels of government or with organizations, associations and firms that work closely with government. To see the Center in action, and to hear from student participants and the program's former director, Dr. Robert Huckfeldt, go here.Testimonials from UCCS alumni may be read here.
