WHY I CHOSE THE BERKELEY EHS PROGRAM

I chose UC Berkeley because of the University’s reputation as one of the most esteemed public institutions, the proximity of UCB to other leading schools and the tech industry, and the world-renowned faculty. I selected the EHS program in order to address health concerns related to environmental exposures.
