Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

I don't have a single complaint. I love every aspect of it!
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017

The masters and PhD are combined, so you only have one major project to work on.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

If you aren't married and have a kid, don't go here if you want any form of a social life. Class sizes are small so that is good
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

The UC Davis applied mathematics program is a strong education choice and a competitive program. The students here are academically competitive but still offer a good social atmosphere.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty are supportive, as are the students. It is rigorous and we are well prepared, but the atmosphere is generally pleasant and not cut throat.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

Pros: Great administrative staff and faculty make you feel very supported. Interactions with top-notch researchers Cons: Some classes taught by professors who don't care about the material
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2018

The dapartment has many faculty with good academic reputation and research ability. But the teaching quality of most of the course are not quite good. Beside, the load of TA job is too heavy.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Excellent faculty and advisors. The access and availability with quality research tools and equipment is great. I would like to see UCD encourage and require the use of computer software in courses to prepare students for these tools in their careers. Overall wonderful experience!
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2020

This graduate program is a general sociology program which means there is a broad array of possible class choices for grad students. This can be beneficial for people who are unsure of their interests, but is challenging for those of us with specific interests. Also, because graduate students only take classes for the first two-three years of the program, a lot of people "get lost" when they are on their own. There is not as much faculty involvement/collaboration as I would like to see but that may change as I progress in the program. Overall, this program has many benefits, I would just like to see a little more rigid guidance and clearly stated and monitored expectations.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Great law school that definitely focuses more on certain types of practice areas than others (like trial practice). One of my favorite things about this school is that you receive a really great legal education in a really warm and welcoming environment (which is not the typical environment as many law schools). Sadly, the regents just voted to raise our tuition again, and the price is already incredibly high- even for in-state students. Make sure to inquire about financial aid.
