This summer, do something Davis

From law to robotics to English language, UC Davis offers unforgettable, enriching summer experiences for students of all ages, backgrounds and interests. Some programs confer credit for degree-seeking students while others make college preparation fun for youth and invite international students to immerse in coursework and culture.

Summer courses for credit

Three UC Davis programs offer summer courses for credit: Summer Sessions for everyone, Summer Start for incoming international freshmen and Study Abroad for currently enrolled UC Davis students.
