You do not need to be a major in one of the departments participating in Berkeley Connect in order to take part in the program. Below we have offered some suggestions to help you find a Berkeley Connect program that is relevant to your academic interests. Often more than one program is suggested, because students’ interests within a particular major can vary. For example, if you are planning to major in Middle Eastern Studies with a particular emphasis on literature, then you might benefit from participating in Berkeley Connect in English, while a Middle Eastern Studies major who is focused on the history of the region might wish to join Berkeley Connect in History.  We encourage you to visit the webpage links below to read more about the curriculum in departments that sound interesting to you. And feel free to contact our office with questions!
