  • I have learned so much in a relatively short time, but I have never felt overwhelmed from the information. I think that says a lot about the program and how they want to see us succeed and help us learn along the way.

Course Overview

  • Students in our Hybrid program receive a truly unique, immersive experience coupling our in-person and online programs. Students will stay at our quintessential dormitories at UC Berkeley, while taking classes online from top notch staff recruited from across the globe. We will have spaces set up for students to go and attend their online class and join their
    classmates from around the world.

Excursions at UC Berkeley – Students may get the opportunity to visit technology companies such as Thunkable and Google Geo Education. In the past, thunkable staff members described their scholastic and career journeys and the different responsibilities that they have with the team. Students also got a behind the scenes tour of Google, where they heard an insightful talk from the Google Earth Education Team.
