Graduate Student Outreach & Diversity

I am Dr. Josephine Moreno, the graduate diversity coordinator for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Letters & Science at the University of California, Berkeley. I work with both prospective and continuing diversity graduate students. Prospective diversity students and I often discuss graduate school preparation, admission criteria, the admission process, and university and external funding. Continuing students are typically concerned about funding, academic issues, completing their degrees, and personal matters.

Prospective graduate students may be interested in STEP by Step, an advising tool for arts & humanities and social sciences students. Although it was developed for Berkeley students, it includes valuable information for all students interested in graduate studies at Berkeley and students who desire to enrich their undergraduate experience.

I encourage all of you — both prospective and continuing students – to contact me about matters related to graduate school in the Arts and Humanities at UC Berkeley. For continuing students, please visit the resource pages Crafting your Future as you consider your professional options and future. Also, in coordination with the Career Center, we have a new resource available, The Versatile PhD, for current graduate students who desire to learn more about alternative careers to academia following completion of the doctoral degree.

You can make an appointment by calling me at the phone number below or sending an e-mail message. If you are planning a visit to the UC Berkeley campus, my office address is 158 Barrows Hall.
