Degree: Mathematics

I am in Statistics PhD program. I am really glad I made the right choice. Davis is a small town, quiet and safe. It's a really good place for doing research. The faculty in my department is really nice and professional. I could learn a lot here.

Davis is a great place to study certain areas of mathematics (including mine). While the variety of graduate courses offered by the math department is not as wide as in some other places, the faculty will make sure that you have all the resources you need to learn the math you're interested in. The department is somewhat small (compared to other big universities), but I find this to largely be a good thing... the atmosphere in the department is great! From my point of view, one of the only downsides is the size of the stipend given to graduate students... it is significantly smaller than that in a number of other programs (throughout the sciences) that I am aware of. However, you can supplement it via grants, fellowships, and summer teaching.

Lots of social activities available within and without the program. More clear guidelines with regard to graduation progress would be great.
