The University of California was chartered in 1868 and its flagship campus — envisioned as a "City of Learning" — was established at Berkeley, on San Francisco Bay.
Its early guiding lights, charged with providing education (both "practical" and "classical") for the state's people, gradually established a distinguished faculty (with 22 Nobel laureates to date), a stellar research library, and more than 350 academic programs.This California institution became a catalyst of economic growth and social innovation the place where vitamin E was discovered, a lost Scarlatti opera found, the flu virus identified, and the nation's first no-fault divorce law drafted.
Research at Berkeley is undertaken within several types of organizations—academic departments, institutes and centers, museums, and field stations.

Berkeley has been a great place to study. I've had a chance to meet world class professors in political science whose work has shaped the field. I've engaged in undergraduate research opportunities. There are also so many ways to take advantage of the opportunities available in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love the vibrant campus culture as well.
Studying in Berkeley presents a tough academic challenge to all who are here, but it has been very rewarding! In my time here, I have grown in tremendous ways, both as a student and as a person. Since I decided on a double major, I have had the great opportunity to get to know two different departments pretty well. They both happen to be some of the smallest departments...
Very reputable sources of knowledge available, but there is too little personal connections between instructors and undergraduate students.
