UC Davis College of Letters and Science

At the UC Davis College of Letters and Science, we search for solutions through our broad interdisciplinary lens of the arts, sciences and humanities. We stand together in wonder and inspiration as we identify questions, foster scholarship and creatively look to improve our world – with critical thinking, intellectual generosity and great people.
As the college with the broadest offering of disciplines, teaching the core curriculum for virtually all 23,000 undergraduate students and mentoring more than a thousand graduate students, the College of Letters and Science lives and breathes its interdisciplinary mission each day. We thrive at the intersection of fundamental scholarship, exploring and connecting fields as diverse as the arts & stars, math & music, chemistry & cinema, economics & English – and providing the foundation for a truly one-of-a-kind liberal arts education. Learn more: about the College of Letters and Science
