During their first year of study, students take Anthropology 160, The Forms of Folklore, which provides an overview of folklore and folkloristics, and the core seminar, Folklore 262A-262B, Folklore Theory and Techniques. A graduate course in fieldwork methodology is also required, as selected from a list of approved courses. In close consultation with the Chair or Graduate Advisor, students work out a program of study that provides depth in one of the areas in which Berkeley is particularly strong: these include critical theories of traditionalities and modernities; ethnomusicology; medicine and the body; folk art and materiality; festival and religion; performance studies; gender and sexuality; race and coloniality; narrative and discourse analysis. Students may also propose courses of study in other areas.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
