For Fall 2015, we have completed our first round of applications and admissions. Additional applications may still be considered until all spots are filled. Please email ds421@berkeley.edu if you are interested, and we will update you on status of the admissions decisions.

Departmental applications will be obtained from the student’s home department. DS421 applications will include: information on interdisciplinary background and interests; statement of the student’s motivation and interest in the DS421 program; information on independent fellowships received or applied for; and a request for 1-2 additional letters addressing the student’s aptitude and demonstrated interest in interdisciplinary training and research.
