In the latest National Research Council (NRC) report, Berkeley had the highest number of top-ranked doctoral programs in the nation.

In addition to over 100 graduate programs, Berkeley offers concurrent graduate degrees, interdisciplinary doctoral and exchange programs. UC Berkeley does not offer ad hoc joint degree programs or cotutelle agreements with other universities.
Applicants may only apply to one single degree program or one concurrent degree program per admission term.
To confirm whether there are any additional requirements for admission, visit the website of the department of your choice, or the Berkeley Academic Guide (Bulletin) for specific course listings, faculty, and detailed requirements.
A listing of M.A./Ph.D. or M.S./Ph.D. indicates that a Master’s degree may be awarded to students pursuing work toward the Ph.D. after fulfillment of the appropriate requirements. If the program does not list M.A. or M.S. separately, the program does not offer a terminal Master’s degree.
Your online application must be submitted by 8:59 pm Pacific Standard Time on the day of the program’s deadline.
Due to the pandemic, please contact the departments by email only.
