University of California, Berkeley
The geography department at UC Berkeley would like to invite students to join them on campus this summer for summer sessions 2019! We are offering a wide array of courses this summer, many that are lower division and would be a great introduction for students to human geography or earth systems science. Most of these courses are great for students of any background or interest, and there are few that require pre-requisites.
If you have any questions about summer courses at Berkeley, you can find information to many common questions through these links:
- Applying to summer courses at UC Berkeley
- Financial aid for summer sessions
- Housing options for summer sessions
I also wanted to mention the program for community college students and UC Berkeley called Pathways that will allow eligible US students to transfer financial aid to take Berkeley Summer Sessions courses. Please refer your students to their website for more information: Pathways to Four-Year Universities.
