LPS students who want to travel to conferences can get their trip funded via the Student Travel and Research (STAR) Fund.
Students engaged in social justice activities and research should talk to Professor Cramer about grants made through The Slay Fund for Social Justice, administered by the Working Group to Infuse Global and Multicultural Understandings, through the Office of the Provost.
LPS students can take part in the 3+3 program, which enables them to earn their undergraduate degree in LPS, and their law degree from Drake University's Law School, in six years instead of seven. In the 3+3 program, Drake LPS majors can count 2 LAW courses, taken in their junior year or during 1L, towards their LPS graduation requirements.
Drake LPS majors engage in experiential and service learning in many of their LPS designated courses; they also sign up for service learning through the Office of Service Learning, and by engaging in service learning during study abroad.
LPS students can take advantage of several opportunities to enrich their undergraduate education, and transition into post-graduate life. Many of our students study abroad with guidance from Drake's Drake International; they engage in J-Term and May Term study with Drake faculty traveling to places like New York City, Uganda, South Africa, the Galapagos Islands, and Egypt.
