The Graduate Diversity Office in the Division of the Social Sciences has compiled a list of resources for graduate admissions and diversity. The resources include information about diversity at UC Berkeley, in addition to enrollment data for the Social Sciences Division. These documents will be helpful to faculty and staff involved in the review process.
This campus is home to dozens of exciting research centers and institutes where cutting-edge research is being conducted and new initiatives are being launched every year. Students and faculty in the College of Letters & Science have access to laboratories, libraries, and other resources that help make Berkeley the premier research university in the world.
At the heart of UC Berkeley's achievements and reputation is a faculty second to none, honored around the globe for its intellectual preeminence. Berkeley's professors are pioneers — researchers and scholars who change the world with their accomplishments and shape the minds of future generations with their engaging teaching skills.
For graduate study, universities support students through fellowships, teaching appointments, research assistant positions, or a combination of these sources. The monies available are often dependent on the size of departments' and schools' endowments and resources that may be available through the Graduate Division. Each school or department has its own methods of distributing fellowship funds. Keep in mind that little funding is usually available for terminal master's degree students.
