Degree Program

A degree program (also called a "major") is a structured and sequenced set of courses and requirements leading to a degree at the undergraduate or graduate level. Every department at Berkeley offers at least one degree program, and some offer several. In addition, there are a number of interdisciplinary degree programs overseen by faculty from several departments of instruction within a school or college or between schools and colleges but under the leadership of at least one dean. There are nearly 350 degree programs at Berkeley. With one exception, degree programs are listed on a student's diploma and transcript. Diplomas for all students in the College of Engineering show "Engineering" without reference to a specific major; the major [e.g., Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering] is reflected on the transcript.

See the Berkeley Academic Guide for lists of undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
