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 workshop, 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.
The CED Summer Programs admissions portal is currently closed. CED will begin accepting applications again in mid-December 2019.
