Beyond the Classroom

Learning isn’t limited to the classroom at Mills. Take a look at some of the opportunities you can have while studying public policy.

Public policy students are encouraged to gain practical experience through internships. Students have interned with the City of Oakland Youth Advisory Commission, the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, the Local Clean Energy Alliance of the East Bay, and the San Francisco Tenants Union, among other organizations.

Activities & Resources
The Lorry I. Lokey School of Business and Public Policy at Mills College, which houses the public policy program, organizes conferences and lectures featuring leaders in public policy and socially responsible business. These events provide additional opportunities for you to explore issues such as inequality and environmental sustainability and learn about what solutions work best in practice.
