University of California, Berkeley is the leading public university in the country and is among the top Universities in the world. The roots of the University of California go back to the gold rush days of 1849, when the drafters of the State Constitution required the legislature to “encourage by all suitable means the promotion of intellectual, scientific, moral and agricultural improvement” of the people of California. Berkeley’s reputation for academic excellence combined with its beautiful campus and Northern California location make it a unique and exciting educational experience. Its proximity to the San Francisco Bay Area further enhances the University’s cultural opportunities for enrichment and self-discovery.
