The Department of Mathematics has provided information for students who plan to study abroad. Review your department’s responses to the Major Advising Questionnaires below, then contact the department directly with any additional questions.
Study Abroad Information on Math Department Website N/A
Berkeley Programs Questionnaire
Yes. Math in Berlin: http://studyabroad.berkeley.edu/program/summerabroad/berlin
Yes. Math 104 or Math 185, (major core requirements), are offered during alternative summers. The second course offered each summer, Math 191, is a variable course based on either Math 104 or 185, and may be used as a major elective with the approval of a faculty adviser.
UCEAP Programs Questionnaire
Up to four (4) upper-division major requirements (four courses) may be taken during UCEAP.
No such list is maintained, but students may have UCEAP courses pre-approved by a faculty adviser.
Students should meet with one of the undergraduate major advisers for a plan.
For majors, a faculty advisor evaluates courses taken outside UC Berkeley. Usually some kind of syllabus is required for this evaluation.
The undergraduate adviser may sign.
Major holds are only placed for students who have not seen a faculty adviser. In that case, the undergraduate advisers can release holds for students on UCEAP by email request.
Talk to your undergraduate major adviser and (if needed) your faculty adviser before you leave for UCEAP to make sure you are finishing any remaining requirements. And, of course, have fun!
Independent Programs Questionnaire
Students often participate in “Budapest Semesters in Mathematics” and the “Math in Moscow” program. In principle, these kinds of programs are approved on a case-by-case basis.
None that are pre-approved.
A faculty adviser approves such courses on a case-by-case basis.
