Resources for Prospective Students

UC Santa Cruz is a major research university, creating new concepts and new ways of thinking in a wide range of fields. UCSC offers postbaccalaureate study in more than 30 fields. But our campus is also a place with an uncommon dedication to undergraduate students enrolled in more than 60 majors.

The relatively small size of our campus’s graduate-student body provides tremendous opportunities for students at all levels. Graduate students establish close relation- ships with faculty mentors, and our undergraduates have unique options to work on major research projects, side-by-side with graduate students and faculty.
