Graduate Student Information

Interested in becoming a graduate student?

The Berkeley Natural History Museums supports graduate degrees through several departments including Anthropology, Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, Earth and Planetary Science, Geography, and Integrative Biology. Students have access to a tremendous variety of courses taught in the areas of evolutionary biology, molecular biology, natural history, and systematics across the different departments.

Students gain substantial benefits through their association with the BNHM: 1) Participation in the intellectual environment of each museum and the BNHM collectively, 2) Access to funding for research, travel and stipends through the individual museums, fieldstations and their respective departments, and 3) Direct access to world-class collections and facilities and field reserves.Food web science at Angelo Coast Reserve
