Overview

UC Davis, set in a small traditional college town, is justly famous for its outstanding programs in the biological and agricultural sciences. In addition, its programs in engineering, the social sciences, physical sciences, mathematics, and the arts and humanities are also popular and highly prestigious. Graduate Studies oversees more than 80 graduate degree programs, giving UC Davis the most diversified teaching faculty and curriculum in the nine-campus system. The quality of life on campus is enhanced by its proximity to the state capital and the San Francisco Bay Area, sites that offer a wealth of additional cultural, political, and social opportunities. There are currently 30,229 students, of whom 6,720 are in graduate and professional programs.

The campus itself is about 5,500 acres, including the experimental agriculture plots, a central quadrangle, hundreds of beautiful old shade trees, and an arboretum on the banks...
