The Entry-Level Writing (formerly Subject A) Requirement and the American History and Institutions requirements are under the jurisdiction of the University, not Environmental Sciences or the College of Natural Resources. All UCB students (including ES majors) must fulfill the same requirements. Information on the Subject A requirement and the American History and Institutions requirements can be found in the General Catalog . To verify that you have satisfied each requirement, contact the Office of the Registrar, (120 Sproul Hall, 510-643-7490) or check online with Bear Facts . Here are brief descriptions:

  • Entry-Level Writing (formerly Subject A)
    Every new undergraduate student must fulfill this requirement in English composition during the first year at the University. The General Catalog describes, in detail, several ways that it may be satisfied. Students who have not fulfilled the Subject A requirement prior to enrolling at UC Berkeley should enroll in College Writing 1A. Direct questions to the College Writing Programs office, 112 Wheeler Hall (510-642-5570).

  • American History and American Institutions
    These requirements are designed to ensure that students have a basic understanding of U.S. history and governmental institutions. They are normally satisfied with high school courses. Detailed information is in the General Catalog or on the web site of the American History and Institutions Office.
