UC Davis Today
A better world: Graduate studies in ecology
UC Davis is a world leader in graduate education in ecology. The Graduate Group in Ecology is the largest and most comprehensive graduate training group of its kind — anywhere on the planet. Grad students work with expert faculty members on researching the ecological aspects of agriculture, conservation, ecosystems and landscape, ecotoxicology, and environmental policy analysis.
Graduates emerge with a deep, interdisciplinary understanding of the role that science can play in solving complex environmental problems. From marine to human ecology and restoration, UC Davis is transforming the way we address the world’s most critical issues.
