The World is Their Classroom
Students like Christine Lee, center, have discovered that "service learning" placements outside their classrooms greatly enhance their UCSC education--and enable them to make valuable contributions to society.

From the Lab to the Newsroom
Graduates of John Wilkes's Science Communication Program at UC Santa Cruz acquire skills in writing or illustration that allow them to make complicated subjects understandable to the general public.
