So you’re thinking about working on a political campaign, but you’re not sure if you should go into field or finance. Or maybe you think communications is for you, but you’re also interested in policy and research. Trying to navigate the political campaign world can feel like walking into the unknown, but at GU Politics, we want to change that. Whether you’re thinking about trying to work on an upcoming Presidential race, or going back home and getting involved in local politics, understanding how political campaigns work will give you a leg-up on the other individuals vying for the position you want.
Join GU Politics for a ten-week workshop that will cover every aspect of political campaigns. Students will be part of a cohort group that meets throughout the semester to learn the ins and outs of eight of the most common jobs on campaigns, including field/advance, finance, communications, research, policy, operations and data, and will use these skills in a real-world simulation activity at the end of the semester. Each session will be led by political practitioners who specialize in these areas. Space is limited and students will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sessions will run Monday evenings, from the week of January 28th-April 10th, from 6:30pm-8:00pm in the GU Politics Office (Healy G-18). Students must be able to commit to all ten sessions, as they build upon each other. No outside work is required.
