Programs for Masters and Ph.D. Students

Next deadline – November 1, 2024

BCNM features two graduate curricula. The Designated Emphasis in New Media offers a specialization track for any Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley, while the Certificate in New Media offers a similar, but more compact program for any master’s student at UC Berkeley. To earn an Emphasis or a Certificate, students take BCNM graduate courses and complete related research in new media.

The Berkeley Center for New Media now also features an undergraduate certificate in New Media. Students can take courses in the subject and become involved in the Center’s programming to receive this designation.

For those not studying at UC Berkeley, we offer a short term Visiting Scholar Program for those conducting research in the field.

Each semester, BCNM lists recommended new media courses. Courses for Fall 2024 are listed here.

Applications for Spring 2024 admission are now closed. Applications for Fall 2024 are due on November 1, 2024.

Apart from courses, BCNM offers a broad spectrum of workshops, roundtables, seminars and lectures, which are listed on the Events page. All listed events are free and open to the public.
