Welcome!

Whether you’re looking to change careers, move up in your current position or just love to learn, we’re here to help you achieve your goals.

High-Quality Education

As the continuing education branch of UC Berkeley, our academic standards are of the highest caliber, which means that you’ll receive Berkeley education without the acceptance letter. Many of our courses and certificates are reviewed by UC Berkeley and are aligned to the University’s high academic standards.

Online Courses to Fit Your Schedule

Short on available time but need to learn a new skill or concept ASAP? Take an online course, many of which you can start soon after enrolling. Learn from your instructors and fellow classmates through discussion posts. Online classes mean you won’t need to miss a class meeting when that unexpected business trip is scheduled. Just log on from anywhere in the world, and you’re ready to learn.

Location, Location, Location

If you prefer to take a course in a traditional classroom, we have three centers at easy-to-get-to locations: downtown Berkeley, downtown San Francisco and Belmont. Take advantage of the in-person setting to network with your classmate and instructors, log on to a computer to finish your homework, and tap into the energy of classroom discussions.

Learn From Working Professionals

This isn’t your undergrad environment. Sure, you’ll gain the theoretical knowledge, but you’ll also apply that information through real-world scenarios. How? Your instructors bring years of field experience to the classroom, regaling you with tales from the front lines— valuable insight into how they tackled challenges and built their careers. Your instructors not only love to teach, but love to teach their subjects. Win-win.
