Democratic Education

One of the most unique educational opportunities offered by the University of California, Berkeley, the Democratic Education at Cal program—colloquially referred to as DeCal—allows students to create and teach classes for fellows students. The Issues, Berkeley Medical Journal course, often termed the “model DeCal” course, is designed for individuals interested in learning about journalism and science, medicine or public health; Issues provides a rare opportunity for undergraduates to craft and publish an article each semester.

ISSUES students work closely with the editorial board, which is itself composed of former students, to draft two major articles throughout the course of the semester: One focusing on a broad issue, and the other representing a more focused examination of a given topic. The editorial board then determines those articles that are best suited for publication.
