Power to the Liberal Arts, Power to the Future

Your Support of the UC Davis College of Letters and Science Makes All the Difference!

 

At the UC Davis College of Letters and Science, students learn to harness the power of the liberal arts to build lives of endless possibility. We prepare the innovators, problem-solvers and leaders of the future, strengthening their critical thinking and creativity for success in a fast-paced world where change is constant and careers are yet to be imagined.

Here, students cross disciplinary boundaries to find their own educational path, pursuing and combining majors ranging in art, economics, design, statistics, cinema and digital media, geology, communication, Native American studies, cognitive science, history, science and technology studies, comparative literature, Middle East and South Asia studies, music and dozens of other disciplines at the core of a UC Davis liberal arts education.

Our alumni are leading-edge thinkers who can work collaboratively in ways that converge disciplines and create new solutions. Our faculty's expertise in teaching and research combined with our commitment to real-world learning ensure access and opportunity to a diverse array of students who seek to make the world a better place.

 

When you give to the College of Letters and Science at UC Davis, you power discovery & art & culture & scholarship & the environment & literature & opportunity & science & design & advocacy & music.

 

When you give to the college, you support a liberal arts education with the power to make a better world.
