Student Support

Supporting Students Beyond the Classroom

As the home to nearly 50 percent of all undergraduate majors at UC Davis, the College of Letters and Science has a unique obligation to ensure that all students have access to the hands-on learning experiences that are required for a well-rounded education. Our obligation expands beyond offering a rigorous and award-winning academic experience; we are committed to fostering competitive graduates by providing our students with meaningful experiential learning opportunities beyond the classroom.

The Beyond the Classroom Initiative will collectively support all students within the college by making available more opportunities to participate in research, internships, study abroad, mentorships and field work. Learn more about how you can support this effort.
