Student Opportunities

In a chemistry lab, a graduate student, right, and an undergraduate purify a dye using column chromatography.

Graduate students are an integral part of the UC Santa Cruz research community, working closely with faculty as contributing members of research teams. UC Santa Cruz graduate students are enrolled in programs in every division and serve as inspiring mentors for undergraduates.

Undergraduate students at UC Santa Cruz enjoy a unique opportunity to engage in research activities, either by participating in ongoing faculty projects or by creating their own projects under faculty supervision.
