Alumni

Our graduates occupy prominent academic positions at US and international universities and hold leadership roles in government, UN agencies, as well as at other research centers. Berkeley demography is unusual not only for its research and training foci, but also for its structure. Unlike most universities in the US, Berkeley has a free-standing department housed in a gorgeous historic building.
