Graduate Studies in Agri-Food Systems at UC Berkeley

As a Research Center, the Berkeley Food Institute does not offer degree granting programs. If you wish to undertake graduate studies in agri-food topics at UC Berkeley, you will need to apply to one of the many schools or departments offering related coursework, including, but not limited to: Environmental Science, Policy, and Management (ESPM), Agricultural and Resource Economics, Geography, Public Health, City and Regional Planning, Sociology, Public Policy, Anthropology, Journalism, Law, Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology, Business, and Landscape Architecture. You should approach specific faculty members who could serve as your admitting professor. Please see our list of affiliated faculty for individual and departmental interests. If you are admitted to UC Berkeley, you will have many opportunities to engage with BFI’s programs and research projects.
