Campaign Semester Program 2012
...provides Occidental College students with an opportunity to learn about political campaigns and elections through first-hand experience.
The Campaign Semester program will provide you with a full semester of college credit (16 units) for volunteering full-time in a Presidential, U.S. Senate, U.S. House, or gubernatorial campaign during the Fall 2012 semester. You can volunteer for a Republican or Democratic campaign, or a "minor" party if the campaign is set up to adequately supervise volunteers.
The program is open to all Oxy students, regardless of major. There is no application for Campaign Semester. You should simply register for Politics 295, 296 and 297. Important: Before registering, however, you should meet with Professor Dreier or Professor Freer to discuss which campaigns you want to work for and to get their approval.
You must register for the following three courses in Fall semester to participate in the Campaign Semester 2012:
Politics 295 - Seminar on Political Campaigns (4 units)
Politics 296 - Campaign Fieldwork Internship (8 units)
Politics 297 - Independent Study: Political Campaign Analysis (4 units)
