If you are considering applying to the I School, we encourage you to come experience our community first-hand. A campus visit can help you determine if the I School is the right fit for you.

For a more comprehensive tour of the Berkeley campus, you can also arrange UC Berkeley campus tours through Visitor Services.


Class Visits

Come experience an I School class for yourself. Classes open to prospective students this fall include:

Info C262. Theory and Practice of Tangible User Interfaces
This course will explore the theory and practice of Tangible User Interfaces, a new approach to HCI which focuses on the physical interaction with computational media. Students will design and develop experimental Tangible User Interfaces, applications, underlying technologies, and theories using concept sketches, posters, physical mockups, working prototypes, and a final project report.

Info 232. Applied Behavioral Economics
Behavioral economics is one important perspective on how information impacts human behavior. This class aims to deploy a few important theories about the relationship between information and behavior into practical settings — emphasizing the design of experiments that can be incorporated into many applications in day-to-day life.

Info 259. Natural Language Processing
This course introduces students to natural language processing and exposes them to the variety of methods available for reasoning about text in computational systems. Students will implement algorithms and create linguistically annotated data on which those algorithms depend.

Meetings with Current Students

Our students can provide the most personal insight into our programs and life at the I School. They look forward to talking with you!

To be connected with a current student, please email admissions@ischool.berkeley.edu and we will help set up a meeting. Note that it may take up to two weeks to arrange a meeting for you. The best times to visit are during the school year, mid-September through the end of April.
