The World Comes to Berkeley
Life in Berkeley
Studying in the International Diploma Programs places you in the heart of downtown Berkeley. You attend classes in the UC Berkeley Extension building, just a few short blocks from the UC Berkeley campus. Berkeley is a dynamic community and part of the larger San Francisco Bay Area, the home of creative technology pioneers such as Google, Facebook and Twitter. Here, you’ll meet enthusiastic and accepting professionals who are committed to achieving their dreams. The city of Berkeley boasts a “melting pot” of traditions and welcomes diversity with open arms. Downtown Berkeley resides in an arts and entertainment district that offers a variety of cinemas, live theater and music. You can sample local organic foods at a weekend farmers’ market, have coffee at a sidewalk café or take a hike in the wooded Berkeley hills. Visit street vendors on Telegraph Avenue, or enjoy an outdoor concert at the Greek Theatre. On any day of the week, from the hills to the bay, you can find enjoyable things to do in the diverse and colorful city of Berkeley.

The Bay Area and Beyond
Scenic San Francisco is just west of Berkeley, across the San Francisco Bay. There, you can rent a bicycle and ride north across the Golden Gate Bridge or take a cable car through Chinatown to tourist favorite Fisherman’s Wharf. To experience the city’s hip literary past, explore the coffeehouses and bookstores of North Beach. Enjoy the colorful Victorian architecture of the Haight-Ashbury district. Or take in the view of twinkling city lights, majestic bridges and the Pacific Ocean coastline from one of the city’s many famous hilltops. In the state of California, many worlds are within your reach. Napa Valley, with its wineries and ­ restaurants, is just an hour north of San Francisco. You can fly south to Los Angeles in an hour or drive northeast to Lake Tahoe in about four hours. Yosemite National Park— featuring spectacular rock formations, hiking trails and waterfalls—is also within a day’s drive. And if you want to try your luck in Las Vegas, it’s several hours’ drive southeast of Berkeley. Whatever your interest, the place to explore it is only a short distance away.
