Research that Spans Disciplines

The College of Letters and Science is a major center of knowledge creation across many disciplines.

Research in the UC Davis College of Letters & Science provides critical knowledge that drives innovation and discovery across the spectrum of human endeavor: from anthropology to art history, chemistry to communications, earth and planetary sciences to economics, psychology to theater arts — asking fundamental questions and seeking answers through a broad interdisciplinary lens of the arts, sciences and humanities.

Our excellence in research extends to our teaching, always with a focus on curiosity, collaboration and making new disciplinary possibilities a reality.
