Summer Focus

Summer Focus programs create a bridge between academic enrichment and a cultural discovery of the life of students and one of the country's premier univerisites. Students spend part of their day in courses, developing skills and understanding in areas of individual interest. Evenings and weekends are spent exploring the town of Berkeley, visiting landmarks and local favorites in San Francisco, attending local sporting events, and much more! 

Education Unlimited offers two Summer Focus options:

Summer Focus at UC Berkeley is a 6- to 8-week, for credit program in which students are enrolled in UC Berkeley classes while enrolled in Education Unlimited's residential and social program. Student attend classes taught by UC Berkeley faculty and work alongside year-round Berkeley studnets. Popular courses include Computer Science, Neuroanatomy, Psychology, and Film Studies.

Summer Focus Enrichment offers 2-week courses that blend Education Unlimited's proven curricula with a deep cultural experience of the San Francisco Bay Area. Each session, students choose from two subjects to study. These programs are designed to be combined, so this program is perfect for students looking for a 2, 4, or 6 week stay in Berkeley. In any case, students will leave with a greater appreciation and preparedness for campus life.
