    Summer Session

    The Rhetoric Department offers a range of summer courses that introduce any curious mind to the methods and approaches of humanistic inquiry. 

    • For pre-college, visiting international students, and incoming freshmen to Cal, we offer an intensive summer version of our Writing and Composition courses that meets UC Berkeley’s degree requirements. 
    • For Cal students, continuing Rhetoric majors, and visiting international students we offer college-level courses that introduce the fundamentals of critical thinking and critical theory, that investigate politics in American democracy and beyond, and that challenges them in thought and action. 

    Explore how thinkers across the humanities help us to understand some of the most urgent problems of our time.

    Berkeley’s Summer Session courses are open to all students. Please visit http://summer.berkeley.edu for information and instructions on enrollment.
