If you have studied Latin before coming to Berkeley and are not sure which of our classes would work best for you, you can sign up online for our Latin advisory diagnostic quiz. This quiz is not formal and cannot be used to meet language requirements at Berkeley or any other institution. It's strictly for receiving a recommendation for the best courses to begin taking Latin at UCB.

For information about resources available from the College of Letters and Sciences, please visit the L&S Advising website.

Campus-wide undergraduate opportunities are listed via the Office of Undergraduate Research & Scholarships site.  The Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program offers a number of opportunities to work closely with AGRS faculty on research projects.

AGRS students are often contenders for The Library Prize for Undergraduate Research (deadline every April).  They also edit the Berkeley Undergraduate Journal of Classics, an online publication hosted at the eScholarship Repository.
