University of California at Berkeley

One of the country’s finest public universities, the University of California, Berkeley, was established in 1865. The university campus is located two blocks south of Starr King School.

SKSM’s association with UC Berkeley dates back to Horace Davis, a Starr King School founder who served as president of the university from 1888 to 1890 and allowed seminary students to take UC Berkeley classes at no charge.

Now, through Graduate Theological Union agreements, Starr King students enjoy free cross-registration for UC Berkeley courses and the use of the university’s research and performing arts centers, its nearly 100 library collections and approximately 80 museum collections.
