# My Graduate Course Schedule

As of 2024, EECS PhD students at UC Berkeley need to complete 24 units of coursework consisting of:

- 12 units of major classes
- 6 units of minor classes
- 6 units of elective classes

My CSGF fellowship also mandated that I take 2 classes in computer science, 2 classes in mathematics, and 2 elective classes, all of which I overlapped with my Berkeley coursework. Below, you can find the schedule I used to satisfy these requirements. Not listed below: a COMPSCI 375 teaching class I took on teaching techniques in computer science.

By far, my favorite classes were COMPSCI 267 and MATH 221 (taught by my advisers). There's some obvious bias on my part, but these courses also happen to provide highly-organized and polished experiences to students.
