Since 2013, enrollment in L&S has grown by 24 percent. Our internationally recognized faculty don’t teach just L&S’s thousands of students; every single undergraduate enrolled in Berkeley’s professional colleges comes to L&S to take key courses. In the fall of 2019, an astonishing 28 percent of our L&S students were the first in their families to attend college.
