2 and 4 Year Program Plans
Students interested in the 2 year plan should consider the impact that these course intensive options may have on the History and Berkeley experience. First, students may lose the opportunity to participate in substantial research training and to develop their own pathways in original research, which could limit post-graduate options. Second, because some courses are offered only every few years, course options may be limited. Lastly, students may be limited in their participation in off-campus programs, study abroad programs, and internships, as well as in department student organizations.
It is important for students considering a shortened path to talk with a major advisor as soon as possible after arriving on campus so that we can create a customized plan.
