Field Study in Labor and Community Organizing

Public Policy 162AC

* This course is cross-listed with Ethnic Studies 197AC.

This field study course is designed for undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in social and economic justice, and seek to earn academic credit while gaining experience in organizing. Building upon the Labor Center’s popular Labor Summer program, it allows students to apply existing organizing skills or acquire new knowledge in community and labor organizations. Once enrolled, students will be matched with our community partners that promote the interests of working families in the Bay Area. Classroom-based guided reflection, skills development, career information, and engagement with current debates will complement the fieldwork. This experience can open the door to life-long careers as organizers, researchers, policy analysts, political lobbyists, communication specialists and influential leaders in the labor movement.
