Prospective Students

Welcome Prospective Students!

At UC Davis, we are more than just a campus. Our graduate students and faculty are a strong community awash in boundless curiosity, collaborative spirit, and rich diversity.  Thank you for your interest in the graduate program in Nutritional Biology at the University of California, Davis. The Graduate Group in Nutritional Biology includes faculty from numerous departments and organized research units. This diversity means that we encourage students with backgrounds in various disciplines to apply to our program.

The program is designed to provide fundamental knowledge of nutrition, and then allow specialization in one or more of a variety of sub-disciplines that meet your particular interests. Students at UC Davis work closely with their academic adviser and with their major professor to design a challenging and rewarding academic plan.  If you are interested in a specific research area, we encourage you to directly contact the faculty member(s) carrying out research in that area or to visit the campus and meet them personally.
