One of the most valuable ways to learn about coastal science and policy is by doing. The program seeks to connect our students with leaders in the broader field of coastal science and policy and, where relevant, facilitate meaningful interdisciplinary summer placements and capstone projects.

The program is always looking for new partners to connect our students to exciting domestic and international work in the broader coastal science and policy field. If you are interested in partnering with the program or learning how to become a practitioner partner for our students’ summer placement and/or capstone projects, please email csp@ucsc.edu.
