Berkeley Programs Questionnaire

 

Does your department currently sponsor a Berkeley Summer Abroad or Berkeley Global Internships program?

No.

Do any courses offered on a Berkeley Summer Abroad or Berkeley Global Internships program currently satisfy requirements within your major?

The Berkeley Summer Abroad “Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Europe” program usually counts towards the 7 units of tech electives required. Students should discuss with a CS advisor first if they want to receive credit.

 

UCEAP Programs Questionnaire

 

What is the maximum amount of major credit given for courses taken during UCEAP? Is this maximum calculated by number of courses or by units of credit?

It is rare to have more than 4 units approved.

Does your department maintain a list of courses previously awarded credit on UCEAP and/or a list of pre-approved courses for UCEAP programs? How do students access this information?

Yes, students can check with a CS advisor.

Does your department have a 4-year or 2-year plan available to students that incorporates semester or year-length study abroad? How do students access this information?

Not currently, but students are welcomed to schedule an appointment with an advisor to work one out.

What is the process in your department to have courses evaluated? What materials must be submitted? What is the timeframe for response?

We have a course evaluation form here with instructions. The course materials are reviewed by the faculty who instructs the corresponding course here at Berkeley.

Are students in your department able to undertake a senior honors thesis the semester following UCEAP participation?

Yes. However, the thesis is only available to students previously admitted to the honors program.

Does your department calculate UCEAP grades into departmental GPA?

No.

Are UCEAP grades counted towards departmental honors?

No.

If you represent a department which teaches foreign language, does your department award major credit for the courses taken during the Intensive Language Program (ILP) portion of the UCEAP program?

N/A

Does the undergraduate adviser sign the UCEAP academic planning form, or must a faculty adviser sign?

The undergraduate advisor.

Does your department place Academic holds on declared majors prior to each registration period? If yes, what is your departmental policy on releasing advising holds for students currently abroad on UCEAP (e.g. is advising possible via email, skype, etc.)?

Not at this time.

 

Independent Programs Questionnaire

 

Have any Independent programs been approved by your department and the Study Abroad Advisory board for credit in the major?

No.

Are there any pre-approved courses for your major from other UC summer abroad programs (UCLA, UCD, etc.)?

No.

What is the process to have a course from an Independent study abroad program evaluated for your major?

We have a course evaluation form here with instructions. The course materials are reviewed by the faculty who instructs the corresponding course here at Berkeley.
