Graduate and Undergraduate Programs banner

Teaching undergraduate and graduate students is a major aspect of our work, in keeping with UCMP's mission, which is "to investigate and promote the understanding of the history of life and the diversity of the Earth's biota through research and education." Follow these links to find out more about courses of study in paleontology at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition, see the Samuel P. and Doris Welles Research Fund for information on funds available for student research on the UCMP collections as well as the George D. Louderback Fund, awarded annually to a paleontology student.


Graduate degrees with an emphasis in paleontology can be earned in the departments of Integrative Biology, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and Geography. Students benefit from access to the facilities, expertise, and collections of the Museum.


The UC Museum of Paleontology provides a wealth of resources to support undergraduate courses and programs in the departments of Integrative Biology and Geology and Geophysics.
