Berkeley-Haas PhD Community

The strength of the faculty in all academic departments and the breadth of course offerings throughout UC Berkeley confer lifelong advantages on students in the Haas School doctoral program.

Integral to the Berkeley-Haas PhD Program experience is your opportunity to take courses and study with faculty members in other departments.

  • Coursework with the departments of economics, statistics, and mathematics enriches Berkeley-Haas PhD students' knowledge of economic theory and builds skills in quantitative methodology.
  • The ability to conduct integrated investigation of basic and applied theory in the social sciences is honed through study within such disciplines as political science and psychology.
  • Haas School PhD students enjoy employment opportunities through the network of research institutes across Berkeley's campus.
