Academic Engagement

The Division of Undergraduate Studies is especially dedicated to creating and overseeing programs that nurture rich intellectual relationships between faculty members and students. In the best tradition of a liberal arts education, our courses encourage students to explore fascinating new worlds of knowledge.

Hallmarks of a first-year L&S curriculum are the more than 100 small-group freshman and sophomore seminars and the dozens of Discovery Courses taught by legendary Berkeley faculty. These teaching jewels offer undergraduates a great way to explore new and exciting fields of study.
