About The S2P Certificate Course:  Upon completion of an intensive 10-week workshop, S2P Certificate holders will have built a portfolio of documents and knowledge which they can use in future engagements with policymakers and the broader public.  In the classroom, certificate students will learn about the policymaking process through weekly discussions with local government officials, staffers, and professors in UCR's School of Public Policy.  Outside of the classroom, students will complete assignments such as an op-ed, a scientific analysis of a policy issue, and a short and catchy business card to hand out during meetings with government staff.
