Berkeley Summer Institutes




The College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley, is offering three summer programs that introduce the study of architecture, landscape architecture and sustainable city planning. These Berkeley [IN]STITUTES in Environmental Design are designed for post-baccalaureate students or senior-level undergraduates with majors in other fields who are interested in testing their enthusiasm for the material and culture of environmental design. The curriculum emphasizes the preparation of materials for application to graduate study in these disciplines.

Each program consists of a lecture series, a design or planning studio, and either a seminar or media course. Faculty from the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning, and City and Regional Planning serve as the lead instructors. All classes are held in Wurster Hall, home of the College of Environmental Design, on the UC Berkeley campus.

The application deadline is April 20, 2011.
