Apply to the Graduate Certificate in Science to Policy at UC Riverside!

UCR Science to Policy (S2P) is a campus-based organization that works to highlight and expand the roles of scientists in public policy. Over the 10-week evening/weekend course, grad students interact with policymakers and gain skills in science policy, education, advocacy, and communication to translate science into public policy or pivot to policy careers.
