Undergraduate Programs

Our Undergraduate Minor in Education (UME) is one of Berkeley's most popular Minor programs – and for good reason. It is perfect if you’re considering a career in education or teaching, or if you’re seeking to know more about educational topics for your field.

The UME provides students with an opportunity to examine systematically an institution that occupies a unique position in society and profoundly influences the lives of virtually every member of society. Our program enables undergraduate students to gain a critical understanding of the correlations between education and the development of societies and individuals. The primary focus of the UME is on potential as well as existing models of education in our diverse society.
