The Graduate Program

The Department of Mathematics offers Ph.D. programs in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. The department also supports students in the Graduate Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science, an interdisciplinary doctoral program shared between the departments of Philosophy and Mathematics. At this time, we no longer offer a terminal Master's degree program. 


To review the policies and procedures of the Graduate Program, please refer to our Graduate Student Handbook.

Please note: Some Mathematics Advising Services have been moved to virtual platforms. You can find the latest information on UC Berkeley’s prevention and response efforts related to COVID-19 at

The Graduate Program is overseen by the Departmental Vice Chair for Graduate Affairs and the Graduate Student Affairs Officers.
