March 20, 2023 BERKELEY, Calif.--()--UC Berkeley Extension is pleased to announce that enrollment is now open for the summer 2023 semester. Put Extension on your calendar, with a course or a certificate that meets your academic or professional goals. Whether you’re looking for academic or professional growth, need to complete prerequisites for advanced study, looking for personal enrichment or to change your career, our classes and certificates fit your needs.

You can take many of our courses and certificates wholly online—perfectly fitting into your busy professional and personal life. They give you the flexibility to complete your coursework when and where that fits your schedule.

If you prefer to learn in person, many of our courses are also available at our Berkeley and San Francisco centers.

This holds true for graduate Iñaki Longa, who completed our software development and data science certificates and is now an operations analyst at Apple Maps. “It quickly became apparent to me that if I wanted to advance my career, I’d have to invest time and effort into learning new skills that are valuable in the tech industry. I found myself limited in what I could do and I wanted to reach higher. This was the turning point as I became highly motivated to invest in my continuing education.”

Or marketing certificate Hanna Bandalier, marketing manager at The Ansel Adams Gallery. “I was not ready to do a full master's degree. When I found the UC Berkeley Extension marketing certificate, I knew it was a perfect fit for me. It’s a great way to switch your expertise or gain new skills in certain areas. And the Berkeley name carries a lot of weight—a perfect choice for me.”

We also offer numerous transferable courses that can help you fulfill graduate program prerequisites, earn unit credit toward a bachelor’s degree or be applied to professional licensing or other professional requirements. Our courses are highly accepted by universities across the U.S.
