About Us

Our six week summer programs give students the opportunity to test their enthusiasm for the material and culture of environmental design.

The Summer [IN]STITUTE, offered by the College of Environmental Design (CED) at UC Berkeley, consists of[IN]ARCH, [IN]LAND, and [IN]CITY, three introductory programs in architecture, landscape architecture and city planning for post-baccalaureate students or senior-level undergraduates, as well as [IN]ARCH ADV, an advanced studio for students who have undergraduate degrees in architecture or who are senior-level architecture majors. Students in the Summer [In]stitute explore the methods and theories of the fields, experience the culture of design and planning studios, connect to top faculty and practitioners, and build a portfolio for graduate school application.

Each program consists of a lecture series, a design or planning studio, and either a seminar or media course, taught by faculty from the Departments of Architecture; Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning; and City and Regional Planning.
