Design Your Summer! UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design is Now Accepting Applications

How do designers think? How do they visually communicate complex ideas? What strategies do they employ to make a positive impact on the built environment? How does design change the way people see and experience the world?

Join us on the UC Berkeley campus this summer and take an active role in envisioning the future of environmental design!

The College of Environmental Design offers several introductory and advanced programs for those interested in exploring these questions in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and environmental planning, urban design and sustainable city planning.

Please visit our Summer Programs website to view images of student portfolio work and learn more about the CED Summer experience. You may submit your application here.

CED Summer students use the SF Bay Area as a living laboratory for study (and inspiration!)

Summer [In]stitute in Environmental Design

July 8-August 16

Geared towards post-baccalaureates, the Institute introduces participants with no prior experience in design to the culture of planning and architecture studios. It also offers an advanced architecture cohort for B.Archs. Institute graduates emerge from the program with a clearer view of the discipline as well as a polished portfolio, both valuable advantages when applying to graduate programs.
