Next Cal-in-Sac Info Meeting Nov 7 @ 5pm (Moses Hall 109)

Each year the Cal-in-Sacramento program, a core component of the Matsui Center, sends approximately 30 Cal students to intern in public service in California’s capital. Cal-in-Sacramento is the University of California’s largest — and one of the nation’s most prestigious — campus-based public service internship programs. Over three decades, more than 500 Cal students have gone to Sacramento under our auspices to garner first-hand experience in the most dynamic state capital in the country. Many of these students have gone on to careers in politics, government, and public service.

Cal-in-Sacramento Fellows work for eight weeks in Sacramento internships in the offices of Senate and Assembly members, the governor’s office, state agencies, or nonprofit groups. The program provides free housing for students and a free light-rail pass so students can travel to and from work.

If you want to learn more about the program please come to the next Cal-in-Sac info meeting: November 7th @ 5pm (Moses Hall 109)

13) Cool Class

Cool Class

***NOTE: This course does not count towards the Legal Studies major requirements.

A new 2-credit course has been created.  It’s called “Entrepreneurship for All: An Insiders’ Guide to Start Ups.”
The course is sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Dean’s Office, and carries the number HUM120.

The course will be taught by two experts who have extensive experience in launching successful start ups (one is the founder of Guitar Hero).  They  want to offer their knowledge and expertise to Berkeley students in L&S.  Each week will feature one lecture with hands-on training, and one guest lecture by a Silicon Valley thought-leader from companies including Google, Facebook, Netflix, Khan Academy, Louis Vuitton and the like.  The three student teams whose start up plans are voted the most promising get to pitch their ideas to outside venture capitalists.

While many L&S students ask, “”What can I do with my degree?” the instructors feel that L&S students are the most promising new leaders in this vital field.

Course Description:
This class is designed to teach the art and science of entrepreneurship to humanists, artists, scientists, and social scientists, imparting real-world skills that can be directly put into practice. Lectures will cover key topics in the entrepreneurial process: user-centric design; ethics and culture-setting; rhetoric and fundraising; lean startup path to product-market fit; customer acquisition and business models. Weekly guest lectures by thought leaders will offer direct guidance and models of success. Group projects will let students craft and pitch startup ideas. This course will instruct and inspire students to have an entrepreneurial mindset in their work in social ventures, non-profit organizations, and innovative startups.
