Studying Marine Science as a UC Davis Graduate Student

Did you know that more than half of the UC Davis graduate programs are organized as interdisciplinary graduate groups?

Graduate groups combine the talents and skills of faculty and students from a broad range of research areas. Graduate group students represent diverse backgrounds, skill sets, focuses, and techniques because students have the unique opportunity to take courses, conduct research, and explore epistemologies and research modalities outside traditional department structures.

Our affiliated faculty accept graduate students from a variety of grad groups, including Animal Behavior, Animal Biology, EcologyEnvironmental Policy and Management, and Population Biology.
