We’re Bad, We’re Nationwide

Television stations from San Francisco to Topeka, KS to Knoxville, TN have put the spotlight on the exciting education available for political science students at University of the Pacific. A film crew recently came to Professor Nate Monroe’s Legislative Politics class to catch his students “playing” Fantasy Congress, a game in which students draft members of the U.S. legislative branch and gain points depending on their accomplishments. This is the kind of active learning approach that is the hallmark of the political science program. Political Science majors Dana Simas and Maia Maszara are stars talking about how the class is helping them make connections between classroom learning, their great internships (Dana is in the State Attorney General’s Office and Maia is working in the Governor’s Office), and their career plans. If you want to see the video you can find it here.
