Student Testimonial

“I really want to design websites – through the web development program, but I also want to take classes in cyber-security. I’ve always been interested in computers since I was little. It started with me learning the basics of Microsoft Office. I really like the program at Berkeley and everyone here is great. They’re amazing, especially the professors.”

-Liz Rejano, Information Technology Management Student
