The College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley, is offering three summer programs as well as an advanced studio that introduce the study of architecture, landscape architecture, and sustainable city planning. The Berkeley [IN]STITUTES in Environmental Design are designed for post-baccalaureate students or senior-level undergraduates with majors in other fields who are interested in testing their enthusiasm for environmental design and understanding the culture of the discipline; the advanced studio is open to senior-level architecture majors or graduates with an architecture degree. The curriculum emphasizes the preparation of materials for application to graduate study.
Each program consists of a lecture series, a design or planning studio, and either a seminar or media course. Faculty from the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning, and City and Regional Planning serve as the lead instructors. All classes are held in Wurster Hall, home of the College of Environmental Design, on the UC Berkeley campus.
The application deadline for domestic students is May 15, 2015; the deadline for international students is April 24, 2015
