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.
While all SIG campuses are open to international students, the second session of SIG at UC Berkeley invites a larger percentage of international students to apply. SIG Global is intended to provide an experience where students can enjoy immersion in international citizenry, pursue topics of global interest in-depth, and fully realize the intense nature of our flattened world.
