Tons of Students
Berkeley is comprised of 14 schools and colleges, including a number of graduate and professional schools such as the School of Optometry, Graduate School of Journalism, and College of Environmental Design. It’s a big place with a ton of opportunities to explore different fields—just what college is all about.
A source of pride at UC Berkeley is the department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, which is devoted to working with environmental challenges. Undergrads can choose from one of five different programs offered by the College of Natural Resources: Conservation and Research Studies, Forestry and Natural Resources, Environmental Sciences, Molecular Environmental Biology, and Society and Environment.
The student body may be large, but UC Berkeley attracts some big talent and brains to teach. There are 8 Nobel Laureates, 32 MacArthur Fellows, and 4 Pulitzer Prize winners among the current faculty.
