Student Handbooks

MA Student Handbook

The MA handbook is your most complete source of guidelines and resources for the GTU Common MA program. It is updated each summer.

International Student Handbook
The International Student Handbook is a helpful guide for those of us seeking information about adjusting to life in Berkeley, California, and perhaps even the United States.

Doctoral Student Handbook

The Doctoral Student Handbook is available for download.

The table of contents at the beginning of the handbook will help you familiarize yourself with what is inside. Once you arrive at the beginning of a section, scroll through it to find the specific data you need. You can also use the “find” function to search for key words.

As always, we would love your feedback and will be happy to provide information that may not appear in the handbooks. Please don't hesitate to contact the Associate Dean of Students Wendy Arce (; 510/649-2440) regarding the MA and Doctoral Student Handbooks, or the Director of Student Life Chaitanya Motpalli (; 510/649-2464) regarding the International Student Handbook.
