Edurne Arostegui is a graduate student at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) since 2012 and at the Center for Basque Studies since 2016, currently working on her doctoral studies in history.
She completed her Bachelor's degree in history and in music at the University of California, Berkeley in 2009, receiving honors in both majors and on both of her undergraduate theses. She earned her Master's in history at the UPV/EHU in 2014, once again receiving high honors on her thesis, as well as being recognized as the best student in her graduate program.
Born and raised in Northern California and the daughter of Spanish-Basque immigrants, she became interested in her past, choosing a reverse migration of sorts to Bilbao (Basque Country) after her undergraduate work, leading to her interest in Basque studies and Basque history.
