UC Berkeley Extension is the continuing education arm of the University of California – Berkeley, one of the finest public research institutions in the United States. All Extension courses offered for academic credit are reviewed and approved by UC Berkeley. Our high academic standards attract instructors who are leaders in their fields and motivated students who bring wide-ranging experience and networking opportunities into the classroom.
UC Berkeley Extension offers lifelong opportunities for personal and professional growth, including new career skills customized to current workplace needs. We also develop employee training programs intended to respond to the needs of companies and other organizations.
As one of the top university-level continuing-education providers in the country and the world, UC Berkeley Extension offers a great array of courses each year. We unite the intellectual resources of one of the nation's best research universities with the forefront craftsmanship of academics who are practitioners in their fields. Courses and certificate programs, offered in the classroom or online, in their subjects range from the arts and sciences to business and engineering.
UC Berkeley Extension is totally self-sufficient. Since we get no funding from the University or the State of California, we count on contributions from individuals and organizations in the communities we serve to help us respond to the varying educational needs while maintaining our course fees affordable and competitive.
Extension's online classes provide our participants with the flexibility to work at their own pace. Many courses can be started anytime and completed within three to six months. Online courses provide the benefit of one-on-one interaction with instructors via e-mailed assignments and feedback, as well as live chat rooms. Course message boards give you the possibility to take part in class discussions.
Whether in business, computer technology, arts and humanities, or the sciences, online courses give you tools you can use right away.
