Summer Institute students explore the methods and theories of the field of environmental design, experience the culture of design and planning studios, and develop a portfolio for graduate school application with the expert guidance of faculty mentors.
Each program includes a lecture series, a design or planning studio, media workshops, and site visits. After fulfilling the program requirements, participants receive a certificate of completion and graded credit on an official UC Berkeley transcript. All classes are held in Wurster Hall, CED's home on the UC Berkeley campus.
At this time, CED will offer the Summer [IN]STITUTE in summer 2020 as planned, barring any change in guidance from the University. We continue to encourage program applications from international students, and we are committed to accommodating students impacted by the coronavirus with extended deadlines and expanded refund policies.
