What's New at Berkeley
A few things have changed here at Berkeley. View our updates below as we highlight some of the exciting new opportunities for UC Berkeley students.
- Biology + Business - A new program that is designed to help students bridge scientific inquiry and research with entrepreneurship and commercial application. This major is available on the application for freshman applicants.
- Mills 3+2 Engineering Program - Get a degree in Environmental Science from Mills and in Civil Engineering from Berkeley within 5 years. This major is available on the UC application for freshman applications.
- Management, Entreprenuership, and Technology (M.E.T. program) has been around for about 3 years, but this year two new majors have been added. Students can now choose Materials Science & Engineering + Business, or Engineering Undeclared + Business. M.E.T. is available on the UC application for freshman applicants.
- Data Science - In it's second year as a part of UC Berkeley's College of Letters and Science, Data Science has been available for freshman applicants. This year, it is being opened up on the UC application for transfer applicants.
Updates on Housing
Incoming students who apply for housing by the deadline with "broad preferences" on their application for housing will receive priority for housing. Berkeley maintains a commitment to making housing available for students. The recent addition of 752-bed Blackwell Hall and a concerted effort to address the housing crunch have improved the ability of housing for students beyond their first year at Berkeley.
