UC Davis Graduate Studies offers over 80 programs and includes a student body of over 4,000 students from around the world.

History

Graduate divisions have a long history in the University of California system, particularly at the Berkeley, Davis, and San Francisco campuses. For over 80 years, graduate education has been a major feature on the UC Davis campus. It began in partnership with the Graduate Division at University of Berkeley and culminated in the fall of 1925 with 12 students graduating from the College of Agriculture. As the years progressed, the UC intercampus graduate group programs continued to grow and support one another. The first graduate degrees were awarded from the UC Davis campus in June 1949.

In 1961, autonomous Graduate Divisions and Graduate Councils were established on all University of California campuses allowing for focused oversight of graduate education on each of the campuses.

The Graduate Group Experience
A key concept of graduate education at UC Davis is the graduate group. The core elements of a graduate group include an emphasis on shared research interests among faculty and students to reflect emerging areas of interdisciplinary knowledge and technology. UC Davis offers more graduate groups than any other campus in the California University system.
