Berkley offers bachelors degree in a wide range of undergraduate subjects. It offers masters degree in arts, sciences, and in professional fields such as business and public health, as well as doctorates.
“No school is the school for everybody, but Berkley is a tremendously exciting place with lots and lots of really good students and world renowned faculty.There’s a lot of excitement. There’s intellectual, social, political excitement, and it’s a very diverse, beautiful place. Anyone thinking of going to college ought to visit as many colleges as she or he can to see what they like or don’t like and to explore various options.”
