Students and Parents

Potential undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to get in touch. One of the best ways to get to know UC Berkeley is at the University's open house, Cal Day, held every spring.

Undergrads who would like a tour may contact the undergrad advising office to set up an appointment. With advance notice we are happy to give lab tours to individuals and small groups, particularly high school students.

Graduate students who would like to visit may contact the PMB Graduate Academic and Student Advisor.

Students who apply and are accepted to our "Interview Weekend" will meet with faculty and current graduate students, and tour labs and facilities at the department's expense in late January of the academic year.
