EAOP UC BERKELEY SUMMER SESSIONS
About The Program
The Early Academic Outreach Program offers enrollment in UC Berkeley's Summer Sessions for EAOP students going into the twelfth grade. In addition to being enrolled in an actual UC Berkeley course, students are placed in a special EAOP discussion session and provided with a teaching assistant who guides them through the course material during the program. Summer Sessions courses are extremely rigorous, as they are fifteen-week classes compressed into six weeks. Courses are taught by UC Berkeley professors and attended by UC undergraduates. There are three courses available for EAOP UC Berkeley Summer Sessions. Students are able to rank order their preferences and we try our best to place them in their first or second choice. Past courses have included Enviromental Earth Sciences, Ethnic Studies, and Greek & Roman Mythology. Credit earned in a UC Berkeley Summer Sessions course appears on a standard UC Berkeley transcript and is transferable to many colleges and universities.
