The Judith Lee Stronach Baccalaureate Prize supports intellectual and creative pursuits that strive to advance awareness, and provide visibility for, issues of social consciousness. Each year, new Berkeley graduates (December or May) of the arts and humanities are invited to submit proposals. Prize recipients may be awarded as much as $25,000, including project costs and materials and any additional living expenses for a period of up to one year.
The College of Letters & Science offers an interdisciplinary Legal Studies major in cooperation with the School of Law. The major provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to become familiar with legal ideas, legal institutions, and the legal process.
Step by STEP is an advising tool for Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences students to help them plan and prepare for graduate studies. Although it was developed for Berkeley students, it includes valuable information for all students interested in graduate studies at Berkeley, as well as for students who desire to enrich their undergraduate experience.
The College also offers a variety of interdisciplinary major and minor programs through the Undergraduate and Interdisciplinary Studies, which serves as a center for innovations in undergraduate education that extend beyond traditional departmental boundaries.
The Office of Undergraduate Advising (OUA) in the College of Letters and Science assists undergraduate students in their academic pursuits and keeps them informed about educational opportunities offered by the College. Advisers in OUA help students plan their academic program, suggest enrichment opportunities, check their progress toward a degree, and explain academic policies and requirements.
