All students are welcome!
We welcome students from a diverse range of backgrounds because we believe diversity of skills, perspectives, interests, etc. help to create new ideas and can add value overall. As such, SCET classes are generally open to students from all majors at Berkeley and you don't have to have a technical background to take most SCET classes. Note that a few of our classes have an application or recommended prerequisites and most classes do have some seats reserved for various student populations. We do this to ensure an effective mix of students to meet the respective class objectives and we want to make sure that students find a good fit for their interests and goals. Refer to the Academic Guide for class details.
