Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1999

Academics Rating

Classes are very demanding due to the quarter system. The professors challenge you to understand the subject matter in a short period of time. Class size varies depending on the demand for the class.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1997

Academics Rating

Academics at UC Davis are quite strong and the classes and professors are great. It is an especially strong school if you are a science major and want to go into health science or some other science-based field. The undergrad business program wasn't the best and when I went, and only featured an Agricultural-Econ program. Given they have a pretty good business school, I would think that this has improved or will improve over time.
