Prospective Students

We offer two degree programs in the Department of Chemistry at UC Davis: the Ph.D. in Chemistry and the M.S. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. We do not offer a terminal M.S. in Chemistry degree program.

UC Davis is a great place to pursue graduate study, but don't just take our word for it--hear it directly from our students!
