Students in L&S who wish to pursue more than one major may apply for a double major or simultaneous degrees. A double major program consists of two L&S majors resulting in a Bachelor of Arts degree with two majors, with one diploma issued. Simultaneous degree programs consist of a major in L&S and another from a different school or college on the campus.
The Office of Undergraduate Advising can help you make sure all degree requirements are complete, your academic plan is balanced and manageable, and you explore enrichment opportunities. To help with your transition to Berkeley, it is important that you follow this checklist.
1. Review the Planning section of our site. This describes what it takes to graduate and how to plan your studies to make the most of your experience at Berkeley.
2) Take care of yourself. Don't forget to eat right and to get enough sleep. If you are feeling very stressed out by probation or by anything else, please contact the Tang Center counselors at (510) 642-9494.
Visit the Arts & Humanities undergraduate website to learn more about the majors, minors and other academic offerings for undergraduates. There is also information about undergraduate research and career preparation for Arts & Humanities majors.
The College of Letters and Science Office of Undergraduate Advising will be temporarily suspending the CalCentral appointment-scheduling tool. We will provide drop-in advising and pre-scheduled appointments beginning Monday, October 2, 2017.
Joined the L&S Office of Undergraduate Advising in: November 2017
Education: B.A. in Communication Studies from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (2015)
About me: I'm a Los Angeles native, lived in sunny San Luis Obispo during my undergrad career, but have called the Bay Area home for the past two years. I absolutely love travelling (just visited Iceland as country #20!), hiking, camping trips, going to concerts, listening to podcasts, and drinking good coffee with loved ones.
Transfer students come to Berkeley well-prepared for what lies ahead. They understand the importance of time management, planning, communicating with professors, and effective study strategies. However, even with such excellent preparation, Berkeley does have a few surprising differences in store for new transfer students.
