Making and supporting the news

From energy and land use to climate change, and culture, the societal relevance of topics studied in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics resonate in the news. 

The News Section includes campus news releases, external news coverage of our research, and the voices of our faculty, who are often consulted by the media as experts on topics that impact the public.


ARE faculty are also engaged with the greater UC Berkeley community. They participate in lectures for the public and alumni on campus-wide celebration days Cal Day and Homecoming Weekend, as well as other special events.

Department Events (Seminars)

Regular departmental seminars and a torrent of College and campus events make UC Berkeley an endlessly stimulating and horizon-broadening environment in which to study.
