Berkeley City College, one of California’s 112 community colleges, is located at 2050 Center Street in downtown Berkeley, in one of the world’s great education centers. In August 2006, the college moved to a newly constructed six-story, 165,000 square foot urban campus, only one-and-one-half blocks from the University of California at Berkeley. The college is part of the Peralta Community College District which includes College of Alameda, Laney and Merritt colleges. Model programs in American Sign Language, biotechnology, business, computer information systems, English Language and Literature, global studies, the liberal arts, multimedia arts, public and human services, social sciences, and university transfer, place Berkeley City College on the cutting edge of community college education in California. Classes convene at the college’s urban setting in downtown Berkeley and at the University of California, Berkeley. Berkeley City College also supports an Online Transfer College.
