Supporting the Arts & Humanities

The Arts and Humanities at UC Berkeley are recognized as among the best in the country and the world. Our faculty and students study every dimension of the human experience from the ancient past to the anticipated future.

Enrollments are strong across our division. More and more, students are recognizing the power of the arts and humanities to cultivate multidisciplinary thinking and provide analytical, ethical and creative frameworks that enable students to ask big questions and tackle complex challenges.


Sustaining faculty excellence. Research funding helps our faculty remain at the forefront of their fields and helps Berkeley retain talented scholars. Support for innovative teaching enables us to nurture the vibrant academic environment in which students thrive.

Supporting the next generation of scholars. Graduate students are the future for research, innovation, and critical thought. Fellowships ensure a diverse cohort of students from across the nation and the world, supporting equity and a true breadth of perspectives.

Enhancing the undergraduate experience. Enrich our students' time at Berkeley through mentored research, increased access to advising, and other services that support academic success and career readiness.
