Undeclared Physical Sciences Majors
The study of chemistry leads to applications in biology, agriculture, medicine, and the environment. Research in physics yields discovery of materials and processes for new technologies. Explorations in mathematics, earth and planetary sciences, and physics probe the origins of the cosmos and the evolution of planets, including Earth. Mathematicians and statisticians represent complex quantitative processes to inform disciplines from economics to engineering.
Study of the physical sciences advances discovery and helps answer some of today’s biggest questions, seeding innovations that will shape the next century and beyond. Students who study the physical sciences at UC Davis are the pioneers of global solutions for tomorrow’s problems.
Majors in the physical sciences include mathematics, geology, marine and coastal sciences, statistics, chemistry, and physics. Undeclared majors in the physical sciences have a wide diversity of choices to explore and combine for a rich and rewarding beginning to their studies in the UC Davis College of Letters and Science.
