Q & A: Student Focus

Are there any less rigorous courses in the biological and physical sciences that most athletes choose to take to fullfill L&S requirements. Please list any that you know of.

We, at the Athletic Study Center, advise student athletes from a wide range of majors including many from both the biological and physical science fields.  Berkeley offers hundreds of courses which satisfy the L&S breadth requirements you mentioned.  We advise our students based upon course content rather than rigor. Student athletes are encouraged to take classes in which they are most interested and that best fit their demanding time schedules.  They enroll in the same courses that all students at Berkeley take.

The College of Letters maintains a Breadth Requirements page that will allow you to find courses to meet your needs.  You can also review the Berkeley Academic Guide to review courses and class schedules.
