  • Berkeley Connect in English is a one unit mentorship and discussion course which aims to foster community in the English Department by offering a space for “serious play”: small group discussions about ideas and texts, explorations of the many riches of the Berkeley campus, visits by department faculty and distinguished alumni, and one-on-one advice on courses and graduate programs from graduate students and professors. For more information, please see the Berkeley Connect in English website.

DeCal Courses in the English Department

Please consult the DeCal website for information and instructions.

Students interested in leading a DeCal course during the 2021-22 academic year should check back here for information during the spring 2021 semester.

  • Students may receive credit for working on projects individually with professors via Independent Study. Once a student has found a faculty sponsor for an independent study, they should complete and submit the Application for Independent Study.  Students will be emailed a class number they will use to enroll in the course on CalCentral.
