The class sizes are big so you do not get one on one interaction with the professor unless you go to office hours. That is the only down fall if you cannot learn n your own then this would not be a good fit. The campus is beautiful and the people there are super friendly. Most of the teachers there are there for research so they do not care that much about the students. However, there are some great teachers there that care about their students and go out of their way to help their students out. Just like every school there are some good and some bad teachers. The best ways to study is to make friends and form study groups. Davis is a beautiful campus and the people there are super friendly so it is easy to make friends. There are many clubs and activities you can join. Davis also has a career fair three times a year and those are super helpful especially during our senior year. The advisers there are helpful and will help you get your degree. They do not give you any misleading information. However, Davis also has peer advisers and sometimes they do not know what they are doing so could end up on the wrong track. Davis offers a lot of financial aid to their students which is always helpful and a lot depends on the income your making. I would recommend this school because I got to learn a lot form it.

Overall, the graduate psychology program at Davis is amazing. The quality of faculty and facilities is outstanding, and the faculty and department provide a wealth of social and financial support. After four years here, I am convinced this is one of the best psychology graduate programs in the nation, if not the world.

UC Davis Psychology provides a highly collaborative environment with very supportive faculty. The cost of living is a bit high, but cheaper housing is found in Sacramento if you're willing to commute. The stipend isn't great, but its livable. Research is top quality. Instruction is low-pressure, but very interesting.

The faculty members are highly collaborative and very supportive of their students as well as all students in the program. We have access to excellent resources and the research being conducted here is cutting-edge. While this area of California is very expensive, the financial aid packages provided by UC Davis help tremendously to make living in Davis, California possible.

The Psychology faculty are well known academics and helpful mentors. The program offers quality education in various research methods and a collaborative research environment. Not everyone likes living in a small town, but I love it! Davis is a cute little cycling town surrounded by interesting and exciting opportunities for city and wilderness adventures.

Brilliant and engaged group of faculty and students. Supportive community. Relaxed lifestyle. Quality coursework. Cutting-edge research programs. Beautiful setting, if a bit quiet. An exciting place to be a grad student. Very few cons.

The University of California, Davis is a great University with fantastic faculty and great opportunities for career development. Living in Davis does not provide all of the opportunities of a big city, but it is a unique and special place and close to some of the most exciting and beautiful places in the world.

All academic aspects of the Psychology program at UC Davis are phenomenal. I couldn't ask for a better or more collaborative group of top level scientists. The most striking cons of the program have more to do with the small town of Davis, and vast expanse of farmland separating Davis from everywhere else. All in all, I'm very glad I chose this program, but that satisfaction is possible because I'm happy living in a small town.

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
