Enriching your LALS Education

Here's our current LALS Newsletter (scroll to see more or click here to see the full version online). Keep reading below for more ways to enrich your LALS program!

Are you interested in undergraduate research? Community events? Spending a year or a semester abroad?

There are many ways to enhance your undergraduate academic experience, and we want to help! Take a look at some of the resources here and in the sidebar menu, and contact LALS Advising if you want to talk over your options.

To find student organizations affiliated with UCSC, check out this list.

For undergraduate research information and opportunities in the Social Sciences, start here. If you want something LALS-specific, we put together a few classes and other opportunities on this page.

Global Learning at UCSC is a great resource for expanding your horizons, literally! LALS strongly encourages participation in Global Learning programs when possible. You can start on our study abroad page to learn more about using abroad opportunies toward your LALS and UCSC degree.

During the academic year, you can view upcoming events in our calendar that we think our LALS community might be interested in (see below). You can also look out for events and activities at your affiliated college (and all of the colleges). You can view some of those opportunies by selecting your college from this list, then visit your college website and look for the "Activities" link (or look for the Activities Office in person) to get connected.
