SERC DeCals

Take a SERC Facilitated DeCal

The DeCal Program (or just DeCal) is an aggregate of student-facilitated for-credit academic courses at UC Berkeley. Students create and facilitate their own classes on a variety of subjects, many of which are not addressed in the traditional curriculum. Every DeCal is sponsored by a faculty member and grades are only offered as Pass / No Pass, with the academic credit for each class typically ranging from 0.5-2 units.

SERC student staff teach a variety of 1 and 2-unit environmental and sustainability-related DeCals during fall and spring semesters. If you facilitate a environmental DeCal, please consider applying for a SERC DeCal Fellowship.

Looking to take an environmental and/or sustainability related course? Check out this list of environmental and sustainability related courses at UC Berkeley as provided by the Office of Sustainability and Energy.
